John Boucher, '14

John Boucher is a writer, filmmaker, musician, critic and scholar. His work has appeared in a variety of publications and venues from hand-made micro-press lit journals to international film festivals. He holds an AAS in Film & Video Communications from Seattle Central College; a BA in Creative Writing & Film Theory / Production from The Evergreen State College; and an MFA in Creative Writing & Poetics from The University of Washington Bothell. While periods of intense solitude are important to his arts practice, he also thrives on collaboration, as evidenced by his work with others in live musical and lit performances, independent filmmaking efforts, and various group-based projects. He owned and operated a boutique media production company for several years; co-founded the Seattle-based writing group Les Sardines and their lit rag Les Sar'zine; co-founded zer0day press with MFA cohort-mate Aimee Harrison; and produced, with artist Aaron Morgan, The IIWII Project, a poetry + illustration mashup series that the duo published daily online for five years. His critical work has included writing film commentary for Seattle Gay Scene and serving on the poetry editorial team for Noble Gas Quarterly.
