Anndee Hochman: Writing Workshop with Ossining High School Creative Writing Students
*Not open to the public*
Anndee Hochman is a journalist, essayist, storyteller and teaching artist. In her work, she cherishes small details and chases big questions; she asks bravely and listens deeply. She seeks surprise. She relishes contradiction. Her books include Anatomies: A Novella and Stories (Picador USA) and Everyday Acts & Small Subversions: Women Reinventing Family, Community and Home (The Eighth Mountain Press). Her column chronicling the exuberant diversity of family life, “The Parent Trip,” appears weekly in The Philadelphia Inquirer; her articles, commentaries and short fiction have also been published in O, the Oprah Magazine, Poets & Writers, WebMD, Broad Street Review and other journals and anthologies, including the recent Stained: An Anthology of Writing About Menstruation (Querencia Press) and The Best Short Stories of Philadelphia (Toho Publishing). Anndee is a seven-time winner of Moth Story Slams and tied for first place in the 2022 Philadelphia GrandSlam. For more than 30 years, in a range of settings, she has guided writers of all ages to raise their voices in memoir, poetry, storytelling and creative non-fiction.
This event is a Fall Multidisciplinary Residency Community Program. As part of a residency at BAC, we ask each artist to build and facilitate a Community Program. Community Programs are a unique opportunity for both artists-in-residence and our local community to gather, engage, and be in conversation with one another through art. Community Programs are free engagements open to the public and/or in collaboration with a local community partner.
