Hugh Martin Guest Writer

The Department of English is such a great department here at Muskingum University. Not only does the Faculty encourage their many students to get involved on campus with such as First Circle, who will be accepting submissions for their literary magazine until February 12th, they also with the help of our newly built library will be hosting visiting writer and alumnus Hugh Martin. Is the author of a book of poem called “The Stick Soldiers.” Hugh Martin is an Iraq war veteran and his poems are based on his experiences before, during, and after his service. Hugh Martin not only graduated from Muskingum University, he is also the recipient of a Wallace Stegner Fellowship at Stanford University, and he was the inaugural winner of the Iowa Review Jeff Sharlet Award for Veterans. Martin currently teaches at Gettysburg College. Therefore, if you enjoy poetry and want to meet an amazing author and poet with such tremendous life experience come out to the library Thursday February 4th at 7pm. Hugh Martin’s reading will be held in the library’s McCalmont Colloquium Center. It should be a great time. So come join the English Department this coming Thursday.
