Senior Editor Nancy Marsh takes tremendous pleasure in helping kids express their ideas, concerns, and dreams through art-making, creative writing, and journalistic reporting. A licensed clinical social worker with a background in the graphic arts field, she utilizes a unique skill set to bring out the best in kids. Nancy is the mother of three and enjoys nothing more than watching her children happily absorbed in creative activity. It is this gratifying space that she finds herself in when pulling together the elements for each issue of HUTCH.
Creative Editor Peter H. Reynolds is an accomplished writer, storyteller and illustrator, who brings his enthusiasm and energy to every project he creates. As an author, he has become well known for his best-selling books about protecting and nurturing the creative spirit, including the three books in his “Creatrilogy” -- The Dot, Ish and Sky Color. Peter and his twin brother Paul, launched the Reynolds Center for Teaching, Learning, and Creativity (TLC) to encourage creativity and innovation in teaching and learning. It is dedicated to ensuring that all learners develop the vision, confidence, knowledge and skills needed to move their own lives forward, and to use their talents, strengths and energy to move their communities and the world to a better place. Creative oversight of HUTCH magazine is part of that mission.
