Actual Breaking Book News That Stranger Readers Will Care About

posted by on May 23 at 12:08 PM

Word on the street is that Stranger writer Cienna Madrid has just been offered a position as a Writer-In-Residence at the Richard Hugo House.

She’s one of my favorites here at the paper, and she’s been wanting to branch into fiction writing for some time now, so this should work out well, both for her and for the Hugo House. And those of you who have been (rightfully) complaining that she hasn’t been writing enough lately will soon be seeing lots of new work by Ms. Madrid.

This is really exciting.

Agreed. Congrats, Cienna! Congrats, Hugo House!

Well, good! There's definitely been a dearth of Cienna for some time now.

Congrats Cienna. I really miss the "Worst Enemy"(?) column she wrote.

Thanks guys! To celebrate, my dog and I are going out for afternoon drinks in matching party jumpers from Flora et Henri (the famed children's clothier).

@ Cienna,

Add me to the list of people who'd love to read more of your work. Can't tell you how many times I snorted hot tea reading your all to infrequent features in the print ed.

Please continue to use your snarky powers for good instead of evil.

And oh yeah, where's that most recent Our Worst Enemy(TM) assignment?

Congrats Cienna! I loved Worst Enemy, can't wait to see what else you can do.

This is even better news than the early indications that Indiana Jones doesn't suck.  Sincere congrats!

Yay! This is the best thing to happen at the Hugo House since Tim Keck's kegstand.
