Mary Ann Hudson
Mary Ann Hudson received her MFA in creative writing as both a Hogrefe and university fellow. As a graduate student, she co-founded one of the first literary journals that operated digital-first in 1998. After a turn at the helm at the literary journal Fugue, she worked as a consulting acquisitions editor. Her acquisitions went on to nominations and wins for Pushcarts, PEN awards, National Poetry Series Awards, the Robert Olen Butler Prize, and The Story Prize. In addition, she has won multiple awards for her own poetry. In 2012, Mary Ann launched her career in fiction with a romance novella, which Library Journal recognized as among the best ebooks of 2012. She has since released the award-winning Snowfall (translated into German) and her Burnside Series, which received recognition from Library Journal.
