Andrew Hudgins

Although born into a military family that moved frequently, Andrew Hudgins’s roots in the South and as a Southern Baptist have remained with him. His narrative poetry, often darkly humorous, has a firm base in Southern culture. Hudgins’s first collection, Saints and Strangers, was short-listed for the Pulitzer Prize.

What People are Saying

"I learned that no matter how many times I do it, I will still be nervous when I speak in public. I also learned that it is possible to experience the same poem many times in a row and still feel like I am discovering something new about myself through the words of the writer."
