His chapbook THE WEIGHT OF SMOKE was published by Bottom Dog Press. In addition to writing poetry, he has written screenplays and stories. His most recent story appeared in Beloit Fiction Journal. His screenplay SOMEWHERE NOT HOME won him an Individual Artist Fellowship from the Ohio Arts Council. After many years as a transient teacher moving from Ohio to Alaska, Alaska to Iowa, Iowa to Oklahoma, he found his way back to Ohio where he now lives with his wife and son and teaches at Columbus State Community College. Despite Eliot’s contention that “April is the cruellest month,” Kip eagerly greets each April when he can hunt the elusive morel mushroom in the woods of southeastern Ohio.
