Heather Hutcheson is a Professor of English at Cosumnes River College (CRC). At CRC, Heather serves as a founding editor of the campus literary journal, the Cosumnes River Journal, co-hosts a literary reading series, and organizes an annual senior and student memoir conference, Our Life Stories, each Spring. Heather spends the majority of her time outside of the classroom working to promote the arts and literacy in Sacramento: she has been an Arts Commissioner since 2008, convenes an annual community service and philanthropy event, and she is the co-president of the Colonial Heights Friends of the Library. Heather’s poems are inspired by, among other things, her travels to Oaxaca, Mexico and her commitment to learning (and teaching) language.
