Who’s Michael Jackman?

Hi there. Thank you for visiting my site, and I hope you’ll stay a while. There’s lots here for the writer, musician, writing teacher, homesteader, and those who just share those interests or one of my others.

For example, I have two conditions I blog about – adult ADD and Type 2 Diabetes.

I’m a published writer (poetry, fiction, nonfiction, scholarship) as well as a writing faculty at Indiana University Southeast, where I’ve taught for more than 15 years. I earned my MFA in poetry from Spalding University’s Low-Residency Program. In addition to teaching at Southeast, I give independent workshops and classes.

I also perform (acoustic guitar, dobro, ukulele, vocals, lap steel) with the Americana/Roots trio Molly’s Mutts.

Me and the family are micro-homesteaders, working a tad less than two acres in New Albany, In., across the Ohio River from Louisville, Ky., maintaining a native-plant meadow, organic garden, and egg-laying chickens, and writing about our projects.

Due to these many interests (and my ADD) updates are rather scattershot. But I do update as often as I can. Thank you for visiting.

I have more music on Youtube’s Front Porch Tunes; you can also listen on Soundcloud.

I list literary and writing events on Facebook: Creative Writing Induicky
