Tina May Hall, associate professor of English and winner of the 2010 Drue Heinz Literature Prize, opened the 2010-11 Pittsburgh Contemporary Writers Series (PCWS) with a reading on Sept. 29, at the University of Pittsburgh. The PCWS presents creative writing as an intellectual endeavor, bringing notable contemporary writers of poetry, fiction and creative non-fiction to the campus.

Hall was awarded the prestigious Drue Heinz Literature Prize for her short story collection The Physics of Imaginary Objects. The collection was recently published by the University of Pittsburgh Press. A review the book, which includes “flash fiction,” appeared in the Sept. 26 edition of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Describing flash fiction, Hall said it “is a lot like poetry, intense writing that tries to capture a day or a moment in few words and with a surprise or revelation.”
