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 currently teaches writing and literature to community college students in Massachusetts. He is the author of six books of poetry, and can probably be found reading a book, drinking chai, and wearing flannel. In 2018 he and his wife Jen co-founded The Poetry Pub, an online community for poets. He enjoys walking in the woods, hanging out in coffee shops, and poking around used bookstores.
