Hugo Literary Series 2011-2012

The Hugo Literary Series isn’t your typical reading series. Each year, we commission 12 writers and four musicians to create new writing--and songs, in the musicians’ cases—based on themes and writing prompts cooked up by our staff and present these fledgling works over four events: The Haves and the Have Nots (Oct. 28) featuring Charles Johnson, Tara Hardy, Megan Kelso and David Nixon (of “Awesome”); While You Were Sleeping (Nov. 18) featuring Sherman Alexie, Nicole Hardy, Kevin Sampsell and Rachel Flotard (of Visqueen); Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell (Feb. 17, 2012) featuring Heather McHugh, Lidia Yuknavitch, Chad Goller-Sojourner and Alex Guy of Led to Sea; and The End of the Line (Mar. 16, 2012) featuring Sam Lipsyte, Ben Lerner, Suzanne Morrison and Tomo Nakayama (of Grand Hallway).
