FYI-WW Coast Branch Presents Henry Hughes

Willamette Writers Coast Branch continues its free Writers-on-Writing workshops on Tuesday, September 18, 2012, at the Newport Public Library from 7-8:30 pm with poet Henry Hughes leading a writing workshop entitled, “Writing Out of Our Heads.”  In what is sure to be a fun and educational evening, Hughes will explore how we get to places that are beyond the expected, reliable, predictable and safe zones we often hold to in our writing.  “I want us to risk the breakers and rip tide, swim farther than we should, and go for the swim of a lifetime,” says Hughes, “After all, it can’t kill us.”  Hughes promises workshop exercises that will help use the workshop to get “crazy” and generate some new material.

Henry Hughes is a professor of English at Western Oregon University.  His poems have appeared in Antioch Review, Carolina Quarterly, Malahat Review, Southern Humanities Review, Seattle Review and Poetry Northwest, and are represented in several anthologies including Long Journey: Contemporary Northwest Poets published by Oregon State University Press. His first collection, Men Holding Eggs, received the 2004 Oregon Book Award. His second book, Moist Meridian, was a finalist for the 2011 Oregon Book Award.
