Last Hutchmoot, Jonathan Rogers and I explored what it means to write out of where we’re from, which you can read more about here. This summer, starting on June 6, I’ll be teaching a 12-week online class based around this idea of writing as a means of discovering place. Here’s a brief video introducing the class:
Chris is an Associate Professor of English at Bristol Community College in Massachusetts, and is an arts and culture writer whose works have appeared in publications such as Tweetspeak Poetry, The Curator, The Molehill, and The Rabbit Room. Chris is also the author of several books of poetry, including his latest collection Winter Poems. In 2018 he helped co-found The Poetry Pub, an online community for poets. He enjoys walking in the woods, visiting coffee shops, and poking through used bookstores with his wife Jen. You can read more of his writing at ChrisYokel.Substack.com.
