Industry Talk with Minal Hajratwala & Ruth Ozeki: Ageism and Wrestling the Book

Learn from our illustrious alumnae as they discuss what it is to be a writer in the world, sharing best practices, opportunities, and complications about what they wish someone had told them when they were just starting. Enjoy a glimpse of the extraordinary insight Hedgebrook Alumnae provide into the writing life in this 3-part series.

These moderated conversations are part of our inaugural writers conference. If you seek to improve your craft and join us virtually for all three days, they are included in general registration. The series is also available to purchase separately.
