She is the co-editor of Innovative Women Poets: An Anthology of Contemporary Poetry and Interviews (2006), and of the first edition of The Sword Went Out to Sea (Synthesis of a Dream), by Delia Alton (2007), by the modernist poet H.D. (Hilda Doolittle). She has received Fulbright, NEA (poetry), and NEH (Summer Seminar) Fellowships. In 2005, she was awarded H.D. Fellowship at the Beinecke Library at Yale University, and in 2008, a MacDowell Colony Residency Fellowship and an Arizona Commission on the Arts Artists Project Grant. Hogue taught in the MFA program at the University of New Orleans before moving to Pennsylvania, where she directed the Stadler Center for Poetry at Bucknell University for eight years. While in Pennsylvania, she trained in conflict resolution with the Mennonites and became a trained mediator specializing in diversity issues in education. In 2003, she joined the Department of English at Arizona State University as the Maxine and Jonathan Marshall Chair in Modern and Contemporary Poetry. With her co-translator, Sylvain Gallais, she is completing a translation of Fortino Sámano (les débordements du poème) by Virginie Lalucq and Jean-Luc Nancy, for which Hogue received a Witter Bynner Translation Residency at the Santa Fe Art Institute (2010).
