David S. Hooker is a poet from Fall River, Massachusetts who performs at venues throughout the Boston and Providence areas; his work has appeared in various small print and student publications ('Steal Company Paper, Write Poems' and 'Prevailing Wind' being the most recent). When not spending all his free time writing David enjoys thinking about writing, as well as rock climbing, and hopes to eventually piece together a collection of poetry while he is still breathing. Currently, he is working diligently on a spoken word album which is anticipated to be released toward the end of 2013.
