Bailey Hutchinson


Bailey Hutchinson is an editor for Milkweed Editions. Prior to joining Milkweed in 2019 as a bookseller and events coordinator, she was Assistant Director of Open Mouth Reading Series in Fayetteville, AR. She earned a BA in English Literature from Rhodes College and an MFA in Poetry from the University of Arkansas, where she served as both Poetry Editor and Social Media Editor for the Arkansas International. She is the author of Gut: Poems, which won the 2022 Miller Williams Poetry Prize. Her writing can be found in Muzzle Magazine, BOAAT, Waxwing, and more.

I work at Milkweed because I value literature as a means of building and nurturing community. Books are conversations—between readers, authors, other books, and more—and I hope always to facilitate meaningful, nourishing dialogues.
