Nathan Hogan

We are thrilled to report that 2009 Global Fellow alum Nathan Hogan has his first published story—”The Church at Yavi”—in the newest issue of The Missouri Review. In the foreword, Editor Speer Morgan says that Nathan’s story “demonstrates the sad truth that wisdom doesn’t necessarily accompany age.  A long-divorced couple journey to the site in Argentina where their daughter may or may not have died in a motorcycle accident.  It is a story of how avoidance and the failure to adjust to life’s traumas can keep one forever lost in the past.”  Click here to read an excerpt of the story, here to purchase a copy, and here to read about Nathan’s trip to Greenland in summer 2009, where he traveled as a Global Fellow to gather material for his forthcoming historical novel.  Congrats, Nate!

Five down, seven to go.  In the past several months, Saskya has been welcomed into Iran; Bekah has studied Greek on an island; Terry has found the location of her play; Elizabeth has begun tackling the strange sounds of Swedish; John has been settling into life on the Gaelic coast.  We are so thrilled to be a part of these wonderful experiences, as well as the inspired writing we know will be produced as a result.  Please continue to check in with our blog to hear all about these trips and more in the writers’ own words.  Thanks!
