Come congratulate Matthew E. Nordin on the publishing of his poetry book at a Meet & Greet for the poet at the Nebraska Barn & Grill from 2:00-4:00 on Saturday, May 15th. Books will be available to purchase as well as Matthew will be signing books. Matthew currently resides in Iowa, but will be in Gothenburg for the holiday weekend.
Musing of the Northern Poet was published in 2016 and is influenced by Matt’s love of God, his wife, and the Renaissance festivals. This collection of syllabic poetry will enlighten the reader through its couplets and verse. From his best poems written while attending Bible college, to his lighter works from his involvement at local Ren Faires, these poems seek to inspire and reach the frontiers of the mind’s emotions. Split into three sections, it is the author’s desire to have others experience his life’s passions: faith, hope, and love.
Matthew is a speculative fiction writer, poet, and a midwestern traveler. He became a sci-fi and fantasy enthusiast during his years attending a one-room, country school near his childhood home of Gothenburg, Nebraska. As an avid reader of poetry, Matthew found himself creating over one hundred poems throughout high school. After high school, he earned a double Bachelor’s of Science in Christian Education and Biblical Studies from Grace University in Omaha. He met his wife, Lisa, while performing at a Renaissance Festival with Evengard Improv, a theater troupe he co-founded and now leads. They have enjoyed performing in hundreds of shows at some of the most unique locations.
