To find my home in one sentence, concise, as if hammered in metal.
Not to enchant anybody.
Not to earn a lasting name in posterity.  An unnamed need
for order, for rhythm, for form,
which three words are opposed to chaos and nothingness.

Welcome


This is the personal web page for Tom Schmidt, designed for use primarily by family and friends.

By selecting one of the page tabs, you may access personal and professional information, descriptions of my recent fiction and nonfiction with links to purchase, samples of my poetry and photography, audio recordings of my own work and others', and contact information. 

The site is also home to Nottuim Press. Because this is my private publishing venture, please do not send manuscripts, proposals, or inquiries.
