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All his published and accepted poems (over 360 so far) -- along with unpublished poems -- can be found at the home to his creative work: TimothyPilgrim.org .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.

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

Also provided are links to several dozen non-mainstream media as well as a potpourri of media criticism (a number, with compelling YouTube videos).
