BIO

Oi ! I’m Jeremiah Walton. For the past ~3 years I’ve been bopping around the U.S. between hitchhiking + rubber tramping, running traveling bookstore Books & Shovels +  Nostrovia! Press.

I’ve featured at the NYC Poetry Festival + Cleveland Snoetry Festival + San Francisco Lit Crawl + Beast Crawl Oakland + This Lil Lit Fest + street corners / venues across the country.

A handful of my books are floating around, but most recently is “From Here Til Utopia” (Ghost City Press), a part of their 2016 Summer Microchap Series.

I focus on in-person distribution at open mics + busking + festivals. Word of mouth is fulfilling & feels to be a more intimate promotional process.

I stuck my thumb out Fall 2013. The road quickly explained that she doesn’t give a damn about passions & projects, & I am grateful for the assistance & companions I’ve been blessed w/ as the odometer stacked.

I grew up on campfire Sublime sing-alongs & hopping New Hampshire freight w/ spraycans.

I externalize to process information. Imagery + confusion.

I ramble to the moon when there’s no wax. I talk to the moon because they teach you to listen.

Looking for the days when I could put poems out w/o giving a shit what any of you thought of me. Looking for diary entries without a thousand false eyes tearing my shoulders.

Oh, & raccoons + coyotes are my companions.

NAVIGATION

This webpage works as an organized archive among the mess of my internet presence. I jumped into publishing in high school, & have dusty ol’ teenage poems wandering graveyards of small press. This resulted in a mess similar to my living situations.

You can check out my youtube channel for video poems + performances.

Much of my focus is invested into Nostrovia! Press & its sub-projects.

If you have any type of feedback, hit me up!

Hope you dig the poems + videos, much love, cheers

  2. read through some of your poems, glad to see young people with talent. i do take issue with somethings you have said, however, like, “Passion and freedom are privelages.” how can you think that? passion is naturally part of the human condition, and for freedom to be a privelage would imply slavery was a normal thing. passion is just an expression of concentrated love.
