Timothy Pilgrim -- poet & teacher

Koutsky fish 

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

Click on Poetry by Pilgrim to see many of his published poems.

Every poem published or accepted (about 240 in all) -- and new and old poems looking for a publisher -- can be found at TimothyPilgrim.org , home to his creative work.

A new book of poetry, Bellingham Poems, featuring Pilgrim along with co-authors Paul Piper and Chuck Luckmann, is now available from nonprofit publisher, Flying Trout Press (dedicated to education about fragile X) -- grab a copy at the WWU bookstore or Village Books. It's also available online at this url: Bellingham Poems.

Resource material for WWU journalism courses previously taught remain linked at the left.

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

He also provides many dozen non-mainstream media links, as well as a potpourri of media criticism (with many compelling YouTube video links).

Thanks for visiting!

Potpourri of media criticism

"Growth for the sake of growth is the philosophy of the cancer cell." -- Edward Abbey

"The great thieves punish the little ones." -- Thomas Fuller

"It's time to stop letting corporate power make the most important decisions our planet faces."-- Bill McKibben

"The liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to the point where it becomes stronger than the democratic state itself. That in its essence is fascism -- ownership of government by an individual, by a group or any controlling private power." -- Franklin Delano Roosevelt

U.S. war efforts in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan have cost about $4 trillion over the past decade. -- the Eisenhower Research Project

"Every minute, the United States government spends $1.2 million on the military." -- oneminuteforpeace.org
