This is the website for Patrick Dixon, writer. That would be me. If you're here, I appreciate your visit, and encourage you to explore. I am a retired educator, a former commercial fisherman, and an ex-Alaskan who now lives in Olympia, Washington. These days I spend most of my time writing, photographing or editing photos (you can see samples of my work on my photography website, Patrick Dixon, Fine Art Photography).
I write essays, creative nonfiction and poetry. Mostly I love writing of any kind, and have had pieces published by FISH Publishing in Ireland, the Cirque Literary Journal and Oberon Poetry magazine, as well as by several commercial fishing trade magazines. I was the editor of the seven-volume set of Anchored in Deep Water: The FisherPoets Anthology, published in 2014. In the summer of 2015 I won the Alabama State Poetry Society Morris Memorial chapbook competition.
You may also want to check out my blog, Gillet Dreams, where I have recently been posting a fair amount of written work about commercial fishing, as well as other, more personal poems.
My background and qualifications, including both my writing and photographic accomplishments can be found on my Resume'.
I do write and photograph for hire. Individual contracts and jobs are negotiated separately. Base rates are here.
