He was awarded a 2010 teaching fellowship from Columbia University, and has received support from The Anderson Center and the Jerome Foundation. In a previous life he was a song-and-dance man, traveling in used conversion vans and performing to what one might kindly refer to as “intimate crowds.” Hoen has taught at Columbia University and Western Michigan University. He currently lives in Brooklyn, New York and teaches creative writing at Rutgers University. He is at work on a short story collection and a novel.
