Hi, I’m Jeremiah Walton.  I’m a 20 year old poet and publisher from New Hampshire.  I am currently on the road, and have been off and on since graduating high school in 2013.  I run traveling pop-up bookstore Books & Shovels, and am father of indie press Nostrovia! Poetry.

Follow me on Tumblr as I transition from using this WordPress site.

Donating to Books & Shovels / Nostrovia! Poetry is greatly appreciated.  They are pay-what-you-think-it’s-worth-projects that only continue to function due to support from readers / publishers / other artists.  They do not exist for monetary gain, are work to promote Passionate Living > Making a Living.

If you’d like to book me for a show at your university / house / venue please get in touch!  Contact information is at the bottom of this page.

  1. Thank you for discovering my photography blog You gave me the opportunity to discover, explore and follow your blog. Hope we both enjoy our journeys. On behalf of the Through Harold’s Lens Creative Team, my trusty sidekick Mr. SLR Nikon, his brother Mr. Pen Pal and myself, we wish you the best.


  2. read through some of your poems, glad to see young people with talent. i do take issue with somethings you have said, however, like, “Passion and freedom are privelages.” how can you think that? passion is naturally part of the human condition, and for freedom to be a privelage would imply slavery was a normal thing. passion is just an expression of concentrated love.
