Poetry on Brick Street will present Marcus A. Hudson as its guest poet at 6:30 p.m., April 3 at the SullivanMunce Cultural Center in Zionsville, located 225 W. Hawthorne St.
Hudson is a professor of English at Wabash College, and has been with the university since1987. Before that he taught at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, and before that at the University of Washington in Seattle during his graduate school years.
“There are few pleasures greater than watching young minds grapple with ideas, dig into them, and grow,” Hudson said.
He has also worked as a staff writer and editor for an archaeology project on the Columbia Plateau and as an editor for an urban planner. Before his academic career, he was a freelance writer and published articles in the Audubon Society magazine, Pacific Northwest magazine, Stepping Out Northwest, Environmental Action, and Iceland Review.
He is co-director of the Environmental Concerns Committee at Wabash College and a board member of Friends of Sugar Creek, a local environmental group.
Hudson said he likes to get out into the woods and be silent for awhile, just watching and listening, and helping him come up with poetry.
Poetry on Brick Street is a project of Brick Street Poetry Inc., a 501 (c) 3 not-for-profit that also publishes the Tipton Poetry Journal and hosts other poetry-related events. For more information, email board member Susan Miller at firstname.lastname@example.org
