Nathan Tompkins is a poet living the Portland area. Thanks to his pro-active, literary mother, by the age of 9 Nathan was reading Frost, Noyes, Coleridge, and Poe. At 14, Nathan realized he could write, too, and wrote horror and fantasy. He began writing poetry at 15. Nathan’s poems have been published in the Bellwether Review, an annual published by PCC-Rock Creek, and in the Ghost Town Anthology II edited by Christopher Luna and Toni Partington, and published by Printed Matter-Vancouver.. He also has two chapbooks out, “Junk Mail of the Heart” and “The Dog Stops Here” by Pub Rejects Press.
Besides writing, Nathan has also discovered a love for photography, and can often be seen at events, especially poetry and music related, or walking around with one of his cameras, aiming and shooting.
He is a full time student at PCC, where he is currently studying to be an IT nerd.
In his spare time, he admires women, drinks beer and whiskey, and cuddles with his dachshund, Yoshi.
