Dr. Hutchinson is an assistant professor of English and director of the Writing Studio. His research focuses on the teaching of writing and service-learning. In addition, he writes plays and poetry.
Hutchinsons work as a teacher and scholar focuses on the intersection between writing and our roles as citizens within a community. For example, he began a writing class that meets in the Writing Studio and includes immigrants to Charlotte who want to practice writing in English. Also, JCSU students participate in the class and have recently published a collection of writings, The Saturday Writers, through a grant from the WPA (Writing Program Administrators).
His academic articles have been published in Reflections on Community-Based Writing Instruction, Names: A Journal of Onomastics, British Literary Studies and Academic Exchange Quarterly. Hutchinsons poetry has appeared in several literary journals, including Iodine, Pedestal Magazine, Main Street Rag and one chapbook.
Hutchinson also writes for the Progressive Media Project, and his newspaper editorials have been published in dozens of newspapers around the country and world. Also, he is a monthly contributor to Imagine 2050, an online publication about issues of immigration and race for Chicagos Center for New Community.
He has acted with several different theatre companies in Charlotte and is a playwright. Hutchinsons plays include Limbo, which has been produced twice locally, and a newer work, The Pot, which dramatizes a story of an undocumented college student.
