From Our Soundbooth | July 29, 2008

C.K. Hutchins (2008)On this Missouri Review podcast, we’re pleased to feature a selection from our ongoing project to produce audio editions of each of our issues. Today, we present “Interregnum” by Christina Hutchins, which was selected as our Poem of the Week for the last week of July. It originally appeared in our Spring 2008 issue.  Christina Hutchins has recent poems in The New Republic, Antioch Review, Prairie Schooner, Denver Quarterly, Southern Review, Southern Indiana Review and Sycamore Review. She has worked as a biochemist and a Congregational minister, and she now teaches Whitehead’s philosophy at Pacific School of Religion in Berkeley.  Her unpublished manuscript, Interregnum, has been a finalist for the National Poetry Series, New Issues Poetry Prize, Fordham’s Poets Out Loud, Utah State’s May Sarton Award, and the Colorado Prize.
