Bubba Henson


Bubba Henson worked for MTV in the early ‘80’s, and was a creative consultant for broadcast and cable television networks. He discovered his love for teaching late in life, after teaching middle and upper school English at St. Luke’s School, Maru-a-Pula School in Botswana, and IMG Academy. His poetry has appeared in The Raven’s Perch, Laughing Unicorn, The Palette, and Pendulum magazines. He has written for World Wrestling Entertainment and Golden Publishing, and is currently working on his first book of poetry. Bubba has a M.F.A. in Creative Writing in Poetry from Columbia University. As always, he is seeking firsthand experience with the people, places, and events that shape our roles in the telling and retelling of this great story.
