Timothy Pilgrim (pictured above on Mt. Baker with Carolyn Dale), a native of Montana, is associate professor emeritus at Western Washington University in Bellingham, near Seattle.
Pilgrim has a Ph.D. in Communications from the University of Washington (Seattle, 1989), an M.A. in Communications from UW (1987), an M.A. in English from the University of Montana (Missoula, 1971) and a B.S. in Secondary Education from Western Montana College (Dillon, 1969).
Pilgrim has published over 170 poems in poetry journals, literary journals and magazines, anthologies, and newspapers in the United States, Australia and the United Kingdom.
His work has been included in anthologies such as Idaho's Poets: A Centennial Anthology (University of Idaho Press) and Weathered Pages: The Poetry Pole (Blue Begonia Press). Along with Dale, he also published a journalism editing text, Fearless Editing, and in 1997 published a scholarly book, Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained, about newspaper preservation.
He is married to journalist, author and professor Carolyn Dale (see picture above), a Seattle native. He has two children, three grandchildren -- and, now, only one cat, although the neighbor cat hangs around a lot.
His hobbies are running, dancing, snorkeling, protesting (against war, for military budget cuts to pay for national health care, for ending launches of nuclear materials into space, etc.), flyfishing, and exploring ruins of the U.S. Southwest. He has completed five marathons.
