Jim Hinch

Jim Hinch is a writer in San Jose, California and a senior contributing editor for Guideposts magazine. He earned undergraduate and graduate degrees in English at Berkeley and Oxford before working as a reporter for the Orange County Register, and as an editor for Guideposts. He writes about California, religion and the arts. He's happiest when those three subjects come together, as they do in both of his recent stories for Image, which are about a Los Angeles gang member turned artist and America's oldest Spanish-language theatre troupe based in the migrant farm worker town of San Juan Bautista, California. His work has also appeared in DoubleTake, Gastronomica, Best American Food Writing and The Los Angeles Review of Books.
