Write with Hugo House: Seattle Writes @ Fremont Branch

Tuesday, August 8, 2023, 6 – 7:30 pm


Our mission during this time of distraction, artistic fatigue, and social isolation is to create a regular time and space for writers to write and to meet each other. In this group, writers introduce themselves and are provided optional fiction, poetry and nonfiction prompts to work on for 60-70 minutes of sustained silent writing time, though they are more than welcome to work on their own projects instead. Small group breakout sessions at the end of our time together encourage participants to share and respond to work generated during the session, or just get to know the other writers in the group.


About the Facilitator:


Alma García’s short fiction has appeared in Narrative Magazine, Kweli Journal and Bluestem, among others. She holds an MFA from the University of Arizona and has received numerous writing awards. Her novel, "All That Rises," is forthcoming from Camino del Sol in fall of 2023.


Thanks to our partner Hugo House.

Burke-Gilman Missing Link Project Information

The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) is launching a design and public engagement process to study what an alternative “Missing Link” connection using 17th Ave NW, Leary Ave NW, and NW Market St would look like and mean for community members and businesses. This early design will result in an initial concept only (30% Design) at this point, and will be refined with community input. We’ll share this work with the public and take feedback on how to best design this route. You are receiving this email because you have expressed interest in projects in Ballard.

   

Visit our webpage here for more information about this project and to sign up for our listserv, where we will have updates and opportunities to provide feedback.
