<h2 class="nci-h2-featured">Linda Hogan is the 8th Zale-Kimmerling Writer-In-Residence (1993)


Linda Hogan is a Chickasaw Native American author, poet, and academic. She was born in 1947 in Denver, Colorado and grew up in Oklahoma. She is deeply connected to her Native American identity, despite growing up in a transitory military family disconnected from the Chickasaw community.

Hogan received an MA from the University of Colorado in 1978.

Much of Linda Hogan's writing focuses on environmental, feminist, and Native American themes--particularly the indigenous view of the environment. She was written poems, nonfiction pieces, plays, and essays. She has taught at the University of Colorado at Boulder and the University of Oklahoma, and is now the Writer in Residence for the Chickasaw Nation in Oklahoma.

Linda Hogan's recent awards include the Mountains and Plains Booksellers Spirit of the West Literary Achievement Award (2007), the Worldcraft Circle Writer of the Year Award for Creative Prose (2002), and the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Native Writer's Circle of the Americas (1998). In 1990 she was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in literature.
