Michael Valliant

I am a father, a writer, a runner, a hiker, reader, follower of Christ, a longboard skateboarder, stand-up paddleboarder, kayaker, novice birder, sunrise chaser, daily coffee drinker, occasional beer sipper. I live in Oxford on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, where I am the director of the Oxford Community Center by day.  I am on a walk of faith, a spiritual adventure, following where God leads, trying to share my walk and story.

I’ve been doing some form of creative writing since I was 14, when I scrawled a crappy poem in the margin of a notebook during world history class. I was an English Literature and Philosophy major at Washington College, and have written for art and cultural museums, non-profit organizations, the United States Coast Guard, and for magazines and publications including Tidewater Times, Trail Runner Magazine, What’s Up Eastern Shore, and Eastern Shore Savvy.
