Timothy Pilgrim -- poet & teacher

Koutsky fish 
painting 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.

Pilgrim's published and accepted poems (over 425 so far) -- along with unpublished poems -- can be found at the home to his creative work: TimothyPilgrim.org .

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

Pilgrim updates much of the information, especially the NON-MAINSTREAM MEDIA and RICH GET RICHER information linked below, center.

Pilgrim's book of poems, Mapping water, is available from nonprofit publisher Flying Trout Press.

Bellingham Poems, another book featuring Pilgrim and co-authors Paul Piper and Chuck Luckmann, is also available there.

Links to dozens of non-mainstream media and a potpourri of media criticism (including compelling YouTube videos) are below as well.

Potpourri of media criticism
"...let's move to a yes -- a yes that will bring about change so fundamental that today's corporate takeover will be relegated to a historical footnote."-- Naoimi Klein, preface to NO is not enough

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

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

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

"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

"What we need in the United States is not division. What we need in the United States is not hatred. What we need in the United States is not violence and lawlessnes but is love and wisdom and compassion toward one another and a feeling of justice toward those who still suffer in our country, whether they be white or whether they be black." -- Bobby Kennedy, speaking on the night of MLK's death

Since 1776, the U.S. has been involved in warfare during 224 out of 242 years -- That's 93% of the time.-- Washingtonsblog.com

Similarly, during the 3,400 years of recorded history, humans have been at been engaged in warfare for 92% of them.-- New York Times

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


WWU internet security is very restrictive -- much email to tpilgrim@hope.journ.wwu.edu does not arrive. Pilgrim is best contacted by leaving a message with the journalism department. See the link below.

Pilgrim's copyrighted photos and photo-illustrations (except the trout painting above by West Seattle artist, Jan Koutsky and a few by Carolyn Dale) comprise all the image on this site -- and at timothypilgrim.org.
