Detrick Hughes '11

Detrick HughesCity/State of Residence: Houston, TX

Genre: Poetry

What initially drew you to Ashland's MFA Program? In my search for a good low-residency program, my interaction with Stephen Haven.

What did you appreciate most? Ashland afforded me an opportunity to collaborate closely with writers I otherwise would not have met.

How do you feel this program impacted you? From my perspective, my poetry seems richer. I tend to take more risks with my work without worrying (as much) about how it will be received.

Finally, what are you up to now? Promoting my book, Sugar-Tooth Confession, released in the Fall of 2012

Current occupation, or otherwise: Director at a Marketing Technology Company
