poet, teacher, and dad from the Midwest


Steve Henn teaches high school English in northern Indiana. His previous books include Guilty Prayer (Main Street Rag, 2021) and Indiana Noble Sad Man of the Year (Wolfson, 2017). He's proud of the children of himself and late American artist Lydia Henn. He roots for the Fighting Irish, played high school soccer, and gives poetry readings in all kinds of places, from Pittsburgh to Long Beach, travel conditions and money conditions and time permitting. His next collection, due out February 2022, is American Male from Main Street Rag. His favorite food is crab cakes, which are also a unit of value measurement for anything in the world (this website = 37 crab cakes).
