“I really enjoyed your class. It’s the most helpful one I’ve taken to date, and in large part because of the time you take for individual feedback. I also thought the story selection for readings was spot-on, and the exercises were fun and generative. I have a few new stories from those exercises that I’m excited to delve into further.”

-Melissa Slager, Intro to Fiction: Writing the Short Story student

“I would take this class again in a heart beat.”

-Fiction workshop participant

“Outstanding! This is one of the best classes I’ve taken at Richard Hugo House.”

-Writing with Visual Art student

“Anca is incredibly knowledgeable and kind in her critiques. I learned a lot just reviewing stories with her and the class. This has directly affected my own writing.”

-Writing with Visual Art student

Variety and flexibility drive my approach to teaching writing. This comes in many forms: variety of materials and activities, as well as flexibility in response to my students’ learning styles, needs, and desires. I am committed to bringing students a range of practical tools and creative stimuli.
