Hugo House's Word Works series presents craft talks by novelists, essayists, poets, and memoirists to draw back the curtain on the process of writing and examine how language works to inspire and provoke new ideas. Through live close readings of the writer's own or others' work, these craft talks focus on writing as process rather than finished product. The talks are followed by an interview with a noted editor, writer, or critic.
