Congratulations to Kevin Young for the 2017 National Book Award nomination in nonfiction for his book Bunk: The Rise of Hoaxes, Humbug, Plagiarists, Phonies, Post-Facts, and Fake News (Graywolf Press)!

In April of 2016, we were honored to have Young visit Hugo House for our Word Works: Writers on Writing series.

Revisit the complete craft talk, “Throwing Your Voice,” in which he discusses the constraints of voice and novel ways of conceptualizing it, below. The talk is followed by an engaging Q&A with poet and Hugo instructor Jane Wong.
