Tim Heerdink is the author of Red Flag and Other Poems and president of the Midwest Writers Guild. His short story, The Tithing of Man, won first place in the guild’s annual anthology contest. He also has several of his poems published in the Fish Hook, the Midwest Writers Guild’s Shared Words, Distinct Voices and The Eye of the Storyteller, and All Poetry’s On Earth as it is in Poetry. He graduated from University of Southern Indiana with a Bachelor of Arts in English and currently resides in Newburgh, Indiana, with his wife, Amber, daughter, Audrey, and their two cats.
