“The relation to the animal and human worlds are so close in [Hutchinson’s] work. The compassion in these poems draws me in and makes me listen. I found a lot of humanity here, and I marvel at the ways this writer approaches the world with a sense of wondrousness.”

—Ansel Elkins, 2018 judge of the Lily Peter Fellowship in Poetry
