Joseph Hutchison, a poet and author of more than 15 books, lives in the mountains southwest of Denver, Colorado, the city where he was born. He teaches at the University of Denver's University College, where he currently directs two programs: Arts & Culture and Global Affairs. In September 2014, he was appointed Colorado Poet Laureate by Governor John Hickenlooper.
An early heads up: the venerable Stories on Stage will be presenting an excerpt from my long historical poem "A Marked Man" in April 2016. (The poem, of course, from my collection Marked Men.) Sam Gregory, a high-energy actor whose work I saw at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts when he played (brilliantly) Vanya in Vanya and Masha and Sonia and Spike, will perform it. He'll also perform David Rothman's funny and touching "Cruelty to Animals." Tickets are available now!
