Jude Hoffman practices Marriage and Family Therapy in California. He runs one of the country's only brief poetry therapy groups. He aims to write in a way that strips away the rules and expectations of what poetry should be. His poetry is improvisational, and does not go through much of an editing process after it’s written. His hope is that his style of poetry will begin to provide whatever catharsis the reader is looking for.
Hoffman is a top ten finalist of Blue Bonnet Review's Fall Poetry Contest for his poem "Music and IV's."
