Published works[edit | hide all | hide | edit source]

Hughes has published two full-length poetry collections, both from NYQ Books (a division of the New York Quarterly).

Petrichor (2010) was his debut collection.[1] In it, Hughes dealt with family, God, the miraculous and the mundane.[1] Uttering the Holy (2012) built on many of the same themes as Petrichor.[2] Hughes' work has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize,[3] and critics have praised his poetry for being lyrical, for showing a joy in language, and experimental in word usage.[4]

Personal life[edit | hide | edit source]

Hughes was born and raised in Lancaster, Ohio. He lives there with his wife and daughter. He has worked as a pastor, a program director for individuals with disabilities, a bereavement coordinator for a hospice, and in drug and alcohol prevention.[5]
