Matthew Dickerson was a June 2017 artist-in-residence at Glacier National Park and a May 2018 artist-in-residence at Acadia National Park. He is the author of several works of fiction and creative non-fiction, as well as literary explorations of mythopoeic literature with a particular focus on environmental aspects of the writings of J.R.R.Tolkien and C.S.Lewis.

His previous narrative non-fiction nature writing includes several books about rivers and the trout that dwell in them : Downstream and Trout in the Desert. His most recent novel is a work of medieval historical fiction titled The Rood and the Torc, set in 7th-Century Europe and inspired by a fragment of the medieval poem Beowulf. He is also the co-author of Ents, Elves, and Eriador: the Environmental Vision of J.R.R.Tolkien, Narnia and the Fields of Arbol: the Environmental Vision of C.S.Lewis, and From Homer to Harry Potter: a Handbook of Myth and Fantasy.
