Hoa Nguyen was born near Saigon, grew up in the DC area, and studied poetics at New College in San Francisco. She currently lives in Austin Texas where she teaches creative writing. Her most recent books include Kiss A Bomb Tattoo (Effing Press, 2009) and Hecate Lochia (Hot Whiskey, 2009). Cathy Wagner has said, "Space scores Hoa's poems and inserts them into time. Her spaces resemble connecting canyons, arroyos, that threaten to rush full in a storm -- they are capacious enough to handle the emotion (mine) that rises to meet the poem."
