Educational Background

Cornell University, MFA
Vassar College, BA



Vincent Hiscock grew up in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada and the northern reaches of the San Joaquin Valley in northern California. His writing is forthcoming in The Cincinnati Review, Poetry Northwest, and Poet Lore and has been featured in the art book A Poem a Day, in performances at the Institut für Raumexperimente and the Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin, and in an installation at the Belgian art museum Mu.ZEE. Vincent's (primarily free verse) poetry concerns itself with matters of family, work, mental illness, temporality, land, romance, the US West, and--what runs through all these subjects--experiences of complicated love. His research and teaching interests include: poetry, modernism, and contemporary art. Vincent has received a BA with Departmental Distinction in both English and American Studies from Vassar College and an MFA, chaired by Alice Fulton, from Cornell University.
