About Scott

I’m a writer, freelancer and organizer on the Leelanau Peninsula here in the midst of the Great Lakes. Walking is near the heart of my vocation, and I convey some of my rambles in an amiably weird monthly newsletter called Polylith. In my poetry and prose, I write about land and the imagination, pattern and recurrence, and a spirited human participation in this much-more-than-human world.

Also:
I sit on the board of Human Nature School, a local organization dedicated to the mutual flourishing of humans of all ages and our ecosystems here.

Presently (spring 02020), I’m at work on my first book of essays and poems, which you can follow via the aforementioned newsletter. If any of this strikes a chord, do send me a note.

And a few hopes:
More quiet, more common; may the margins flood the center.
