Mike Bezemek: Writer. Photographer. Editor. Teacher.

Hello–thanks for visiting my site! As the author of four books and several blogs & online series, I contribute to publications like FalconGuides, Skyhorse Publishing, Canoe & Kayak Magazine, and Adventure Cyclist Magazine. After teaching writing at Washington University in St. Louis for ten years, I’m now a full-time writer, photographer, and editor. Please visit the following pages for links to my work:

I recently launched my own blog: Hot Mess of an Adventure Writer Tells All: Confessions, Lessons, and Mishaps from the Field.
