Allison Hutchcraft is a poet whose work features landscapes, seascapes, and animals both living and extinct, from manatees, whales, and otters to the flightless dodo and Steller’s sea cow, gone for centuries. She is the author of Swale, which was named the 2019 Editor’s Choice by New Issues Poetry & Prose and published in 2020. Her poems have appeared in Boulevard, The Cincinnati Review, Crazyhorse, The Gettysburg Review, Kenyon Review, The Missouri Review, and The Southern Review, among other journals. A former resident at the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology on the Oregon coast and the Hambidge Center in the mountains of north Georgia, she has been awarded a fellowship from the North Carolina Arts Council, a Regional Artist Project Grant from the Arts & Science Council of North Carolina’s Mecklenburg County, and scholarships from the Tin House Writers Workshop, the Key West Literary Seminars, and the Community of Writers. Originally from California, she lives in North Carolina and teaches poetry and creative writing at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
