Julian Hoffman lives beside the Prespa Lakes in northern Greece, monitoring birds in upland areas where wind farms have been built or proposed. His writing often explores the relationships that exist between humans and the natural world, and the stories to be found when we open ourselves to the places around us. The Small Heart of Things was selected by Terry Tempest Williams as the winner of the AWP Award for Creative Nonfiction, described by her as a "tapestry of embodied stories...a book of faith in the natural histories of community." Along with winning the 2011 Terrain.org Nonfiction Prize, other writing of his has recently appeared in Kyoto Journal, EarthLines, Silk Road Review and Cold Mountain Review.

“At times we need to turn away from a place when it no longer suits or sustains us, when our ability to adapt to its vagaries has run its course.”
Julian Hoffman, The Small Heart of Things: Being at Home in a Beckoning World

Terry Tempest Williams, Finding Beauty in a Broken World
