Michael Meyerhofer

My first fantasy novel, Wytchfire (Book I in the Dragonkin Trilogy) was published by Red Adept Publishing. The book went on to win the Whirling Prize from the Kellogg Writers Series, and was nominated for a 2015 Readers' Choice Award in fantasy by the premier book review website, Big Al's Books & Pals, and was also an Honorable Mention for the Readers' Favorite Award. The sequels, Knightswrath and Kingsteel, are out now and the entire trilogy is also available in audio format and omnibus. There's also a second series, the Godsfall Trilogy, set in the same world. The third volume, The Undergod, is available now!

Meanwhile, I've been writing and publishing poetry for many years. My fifth poetry book, Ragged Eden, was published by Glass Lyre Press. My fourth, What To Do If You're Buried Alive, was published by Split Lip Press. My third, Damnatio Memoriae (lit. "damned memory"), won the Brick Road Poetry Book Contest. I'm also the author of two other poetry books: Leaving Iowa (winner of the Liam Rector First Book Award) and Blue Collar Eulogies (Steel Toe Books, finalist for the Grub Street Book Prize).

In addition to my full-length poetry books, I've also published five poetry chapbooks: Pure Elysium (winner of the Palettes and Quills Chapbook Contest), The Clay-Shaper's Husband (winner of the Codhill Press Chapbook Award), Real Courage (winner of the Terminus Magazine and Jeanne Duval Editions Poetry Chapbook Prize), The Right Madness of Beggars (winner of the Uccelli Press 3rd Annual Chapbook Competition), and Cardboard Urn (winner of the Copperdome Chapbook Contest).

I've also won the Marjorie J. Wilson Best Poem Contest, the Laureate Prize for Poetry, the James Wright Poetry Award, and the Annie Finch Prize for Poetry. My work has appeared in Ploughshares, North American Review, Arts & Letters, River Styx, Quick Fiction, Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine, and other journals.

Thanks for reading!
