Bill Gillard's poetry and prose have appeared in many publications, including Writer's Chronicle, The Poetry Journal, Chiron Review, and Review Americana. His most recent chapbook is Ode to Sandra Hook, published by Finishing Line Press in 2014.
In his review of the book, author David Daniel stated that Gillard guides readers through a "landscape of loss with great elegance, tenderness, and wit, and we end up...astonished by its great, if painful, beauty."
Gillard lives in Appleton, Wisconsin, and is an assistant professor in the English department of the University of Wisconsin-Fox Valley. Desire, the River was his first chapbook.
Gillard describes himself as a refugee from the high cost of living in his ancestral homeland of New Jersey. He considers watching Doctor Who in front of a hot fire on a cold night a romantic date. So far, his wife agrees, which continues to delight him.
