Anca Szilagyi is one of my favorite writers. We met at the MFA program at the University of Washington, where she counseled me on the vagaries of workshopping a novel. On August 1st, I was honored to help her read the title story of her collection More Like Home than Home, which she is polishing as a 2012-13 Made at Hugo House fellow.
I am grateful that veteran reporter Bill Lucey looks me up every once in a while to see how I’m doing since the Seattle P-I closed. After checking in with me in 2010 for The Huffington Post, Bill called me earlier this summer to chat about writing and life after newspapers. Thanks to him for this profile on his site newspaperalum.com!
