His work has been published in The Gargoyle, Little Patuxent Review, Off the Coast, Unshod Quills, Haggard & Halloo, the Fox Chase Review, and Watershed.
Another work by Hinton, “Epidemic” was the winner of the Baltimore Review’s 2013 Winter Issue contest and in 2014 was selected by the Pennsylvania Center for the Book's Public Poetry Project as one of four poems by Pennsylvania-connected poets that were made into posters and disseminated throughout the commonwealth.
In 2012 his poem, “Our Ballpark,” was incorporated into Derek Parker’s sculpture Common Thread and permanently installed at Clipper Magazine Stadium in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, as part of the Poetry Paths project.
Poetry Thursdays, a longtime reading series, is now in its 16th consecutive year. Hinton's presentation, at 8pm, will be preceded by an open reading session. Marty Esworthy will host the event.
