Poet-Storytellers: Richard Hugo & Madeline DeFrees [Carolyne Wright]

Northwest natives Richard Hugo and Madeline DeFrees were renowned poets, teachers, and colleagues in the famous Montana MFA Program. Besides inspiring this House that bears his name, Hugo gave us his imagination’s Triggering Towns. DeFrees gave us her iconic Blue Nun, who eloped into the freedom of absolute commitment to poetry. Both were powerful storytellers on the page and in person. In this workshop modeled on their examples, we will read their work and tell our own stories in poetic form.
