Dear reader, voyeur, space pirate: welcome to tdwelch.com. This site hopes to support the work of Timothy Daniel Welch, a fellow traveler, teacher, and author who caught the biggest break of his life when poet and judge Craig Morgan Teicher chose his manuscript, Odd Bloom Seen from Space, to win the 2016 Iowa Poetry Prize. For those of us who don't write poetry, it’s like a good thing. For better or worse, he is glad to have the opportunity to share his writings and accomplishments on the digital landscape. So thank you, person of the world, for visiting. And please read on if you are interested in learning more about Timothy and his poetry.
