Frances McCue

Frances McCue is a poet and prose writer. For a decade, she was the Founding Director of Richard Hugo House in Seattle. She has published six books, including a book of essays about poet Richard Hugo, The Car That Brought You Here Still Runs, and another that describes the portraits of photographer Mary Randlett. Her 2017 book of poems, Timber Curtain, is an exploration of lost places in our fast-developing city and arose from work on “Where the House Was,” a documentary film that tells one story about the arts and gentrification in Seattle. In 2018, she won the University of Washington’s Distinguished Teaching Award. Her chapbook called I Almost Read the Books Whole is out from Factory Hollow Press. Frances also writes about why tech folk might engage with poetry and recent articles appear in Geekwire and The Smart Set
