Hugo to the Henry: Writing with Visual Art

In conjunction with The Richard Hugo House, the Henry recently finished up a writing workshop series emphasizing visual arts as inspiration for writing. This entailed gathering media such as photographs, paintings, sculpture, and textiles to provide stimulus for new prose projects. Students were able to workshop one short story or essay as well as take part in a variety of exercises, discussions, and readings.

We are happy to announce that two of the writings completed by students as a result of this fantastic workshop will be posted on our blog! Thanks again to our wonderful students and our instructor, Anca Szilágyi.
