Timothy Pilgrim -- poet & teacher

Koutsky fish 

Timothy Pilgrim -- Pacific Northwest poet (see TimothyPilgrim.org ) and associate professor emeritus of journalism (Ph.D. Washington, 1989) at Western Washington University (WWU) -- welcomes you.

All his published and accepted poems (over 300 so far) -- along with unpublished poems -- can be found at the home to his creative work: TimothyPilgrim.org .

A number of published poems are also linked at the left -- as is information from WWU journalism courses Pilgrim taught.

A new book of Pilgrim's poems, Mapping water, has been published. It is available from nonprofit publisher Flying Trout Press online and at Village Books and other Bellingham locations such as the Whatcom Museum gift shop.

Also, Bellingham Poems, published in 2014 and featuring Pilgrim along with co-authors Paul Piper and Chuck Luckmann, is available from Flying Trout Press (dedicated to education about fragile X -- see the link above) and in Bellingham stores.

Just below, Pilgrim updates information about greed in America and free press abuses by government.

Also provided are many dozen non-mainstream media links, as well as a potpourri of media criticism (with many compelling YouTube video links).
