Found Stories @ Richard Hugo House!

Our dedicated and amazing Associate Prose Editor Anca Szilagyi will be teaching a class at Richard Hugo House later this month! Check it out:

What makes a story pulsate with meaning? How can you keep imagery in a story fresh? In this class, we’ll use objects found by students and the teacher as generative material for new stories. We’ll read and discuss powerful short stories in which particular objects resonate, from authors such as Cynthia Ozick and Kate Bernheimer. And, we’ll do some generative re-visioning of our initial in-class writing to open up our stories to their rich potential. This class is open to all levels. Note the pre-class homework: please bring in a few found objects – letters, toys, lost mittens – anything that might be useful in generating new stories.

Saturday Oct. 27th 1-5 PM

Perfect for prose writers looking to give their imagery muscles a workout and set your beautiful descriptions free. Feel the burn! To register or for more info go to:!
