About Hudson Hornick

Hudson Hornick, an American expatriate and avid world-traveler, has decided to settle down in London to pursue his MFA in Creative Writing.

He currently sits on the committee for the Society of Young Publishers, is involved with the nonprofit Little Episodes, and has a 'Literature is Long' book proposal under consideration. He takes a ravenous approach to travel, and if pressed to define this appetite in literary terms, would liken it to a mix between Geoff Dyer and Hemingway, only healthier, less fatalistic.
