April 13, 2020

04/13/2020

PIGGOTT – Hugh Martin of Athens, Ohio, has been selected as the Hemingway-Pfeiffer Museum & Educational Center 2020 Writer-in-Residence. The residency will allow Martin to live and work in the community of Piggott for a month, sharing his knowledge and experience with local writers and working on his own writings.  A more detailed schedule of the residency will be available later.

The residency is made possible by an underwriting sponsorship by Piggott State Bank.

Martin is the author of In Country (BOA Editions, Ltd., 2018), The Stick Soldiers (BOA Editions, Ltd., 2013) and So, How Was the War? (Kent State UP, 2010). He joined the military three months prior to 9/11, served in Iraq in 2004, and returned home to graduate from Muskingum University in southern Ohio.

After completing his six-year enlistment, he spent time working in Ireland and visiting relatives in Poland, before returning to the U.S. to complete a master of fine arts degree at Arizona State University.

Martin is the recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship in Literature, a Pushcart Prize, a Yaddo Residency, a Wallace Stegner Fellowship, a Sewanee Writers’ Conference Fellowship, a Prague Summer Program Fellowship, and he was the inaugural winner of the Iowa Review Jeff Sharlet Award for Veterans. 

His essays and poetry have appeared in various places including PBS Newshour, The New Yorker, The New York Times, Grantland, The Sun and The Kenyon Review.  He was the 2014-15 Emerging Writer Lecturer at Gettysburg College and is currently a Ph.D. candidate at Ohio University.

HPMEC is an Arkansas State University Heritage Site located at 1021 W. Cherry Street, Piggott.  Tours are unavailable now but will resume on the hour Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. when normal operations return following closure of the pandemic.
