The reception will begin with prose and poetry readings by recent Hedge Apple contributors. Several writing workshops will also be offered. Workshops include “I Finished My Story.

This event is free and is open to the public. Local writers and artists are encouraged to attend. Advance registration is not required.

The Hedge Apple was founded in 1999 by Askold Skalsky, a former professor of English and foreign languages at HCC, now retired. The magazine is published once a year by the students and faculty of Hagerstown Community College and features poetry, short fiction, and artwork by HCC students, faculty, staff, and alumni.
