hudson gardner (him)


hudson gardner is the poet of "Crossing the Breakwater" in issue 39.


Hudson just finished living on an island an hour and a half off the coast of Maine for nearly a year. Amidst the broken rocks and edges of the land, he found a voice inside that had been there for a long time. He listened more to it than ever before, and took a courageous route of writing something that didn't matter to anyone else. 


Since then the writing has taken many forms, but has landed on something most people call poetry. And the writing itself presented a name for a collection of it, which is intended to be about Hudson's life, and through his, life all lives: A Body of Water.
