Gary Hawkins writes poems; writes on Modern and contemporary poetry; and writes and presents on the scholarship of teaching and learning. His debut collection of poetry, Worker, was published by Main Street Rag in 2016. His work has appeared in Virginia Quarterly Review, Forklift, Ohio, Waxwing, born magazine, Emily Dickinson Journal, and Teaching Creative Writing in Higher Education, among other places. He teaches in the undergraduate writing program and serves as associate dean at Warren Wilson College, an innovative liberal arts college with integrated work and service programs, where students immersed in books and on tractors complicate his fascination with the worker, who is everywhere. He lives with the poet Landon Godfrey, his wife, in Black Mountain, North Carolina, one of poetry’s most enviable addresses.
