Scott Gibson holds an MA in Education from the University of Colorado - Boulder and an MFA in Writing & Poetics from Naropa University. During his time at Naropa, he attended a vigil for Matthew Shepard on the steps of the capital in Denver shortly after Matthew's death. Feeling empty after the vigil, he felt like he needed to do more. Six months later, Blood & Tears, Poems for Matthew Shepard, an anthology of 75 poems by 75 different poets, was published by Painted Leaf Press in New York City.
Scott later went into education, teaching high school English for several years before moving into school administration. He considers himself a lifelong educator and continues to work with school districts, coaches, and the community to encourage the understanding of diversity, especially pertaining to gay and adopted youth. Scott adopted his three kids through Boulder County Human Services and has recently become a grandfather. He lives in Boulder with his family and 3 dogs.
Scott is most interested in encouraging those who have been silenced by conservative family values and misunderstandings to find their true voices.
