I, Nicholas Barron, started BH in January 2018 as a daily blog and podcast. My initial goal was to fill the void left by a temporary closure of The Writer’s Almanac.

Since that time, BH has gone through a few iterations, including a podcast. But now I’m keeping BH’s focus on helping people discover authors and poets.

Bidwell Hollow is committed to inclusion across gender, age, race, religion, orientation, identity, and experience.

  1. I just read your muskrat poem. Not only do I love it, I’ve had an opportunity to use the comeback.

    I live in Ecuador. The main delicacy of the area is cuy. Someone from the States asked if I’d eaten it. As with the women in the poem, this woman asked what it tasted like. Actually, she asked if it tasted like chicken. “No,” said I, “it tasted a lot more like squirrel.” It really was great fun, especially since it’s true.

    I’m looking forward to reading more of your work.
