CWP Consultant Publishes 2nd Novel

hillmer3Tim Hillmer’s 2nd novel, Ravenhill. explores school violence through the eyes of multiple characters on a fateful day in a public high school. Reviewer Clay Evans of the Boulder Daily Camera says the book “bravely addresses some tough issues for both kids and adults. Ravenhill is a fast, compelling read that offers a vivid, realistic glimpse into a (white, middle-class) school environment.”

Hillmer works with early career teachers in the Boulder Valley School district in addition to his position as a teacher consultant with the Colorado Writing Project. His first novel, The Hookmen, received the The Colorado Fiction Award and grew out of Tim’s other passion, guiding river rafts.
