Michael Hillmer


Golden Pen


"I live in the heartland of the United States, in the steel town of Granite City, Illinois, on the banks of the Mississippi River.

I graduated from Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature. I received my Masters Degree in Library Science from the University of Missouri, Columbia.

I am currently the Reference Librarian for the Granite City Public Library District where my job is to answer on a daily basis the temporal as well as eternal questions of why we exist.
I am a husband. A father.
I write poetry because poetry is what we all are."
