Joshua Hamilton is a Louisville, KY native who migrated to Corpus Christi with his family: artist Leticia Bajuyo, daughter, and their rickety but sweet cat, Walnut. Between Kentucky and Texas, he prowled the halls of the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, hitchhiked in the west of Ireland, kayaked Appalachian rivers, and sweltered in the tropical heat of Panama City, Panamá. Along the way, he has made some amazing friends, lost some, lost himself, followed the pieces to better places, paddled the Colorado River with siblings and spouse, hiked through Peruvian mountains, gotten to know beautiful people and family all up and down the Philippine islands, and tried to make something good out of each day. He earned his Bachelor's Degree in English and Humanities and his Master's Degree in Spanish from the University of Louisville, and in 2013 he completed his doctorate in Spanish (with a minor in American Literature) with Indiana University. Joshua’s field of research focuses on Visual Poetry from the late Franco dictatorship (1960s - 1970s). He currently sells books at Half-Price Books and has published a chapbook, Slow Wind, with Finishing Line Press.
