About the Author

Joseph Hutchison, Poet Laureate of Colorado 2014-2018, was born in Denver, Colorado, and grew up in the northwestern-most neighborhood of the city. He was a founding editor of the literary magazine Pendragon and co-founder of Wayland Press, a literary publisher that for more than a decade produced books of both poetry and fiction. He is the author of 16 collections of poems, including The Satire Lounge, Marked Men, Thread of the Real, Bed of Coals (winner of the Colorado Poetry Award), and the Colorado Governor's Award volume Shadow-Light. He also co-edited, with Andrea Watson, the FutureCycle Press Good Works anthology Malala: Poems for Malala Yousafzai (all profits to the Malala Foundation), and with Gary Schroeder, the anthology A Song for Occupations: Poems About the American Way of Work. For more than 20 years he made his living as a commercial writer but recently became Director of the Arts and Culture program at University College, the University of Denver's adult and continuing education college, where he has taught as an adjunct for many years. Joseph has two children, Susannah and Brian, and lives with his wife, Iyengar Yoga instructor Melody Madonna, in the mountains southwest of Denver.
