(November 10, 2017) – Hagerstown Community College will hold a reception for the most recent publication of its literary arts magazine, the Hedge Apple, on Tuesday, Nov. 14, at 5 p.m., in the Antietam Room in the Student Center.

All contributors to the 2017 Hedge Apple are encouraged to come celebrate and read their original work. The English Club is partnering with the Theater Club to include an open mic session for all interested HCC students.

This event is free and is open to the public. Local writers and artists are encouraged to attend. Advance registration is not required. Copies of the Hedge Apple magazine are complimentary for all attendees.

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.
