Michael Hamilton

MTH Featured-ColumnistMichael Hamilton is the founding editor of Good Comma Editing, LLC  and the former executive director of the Conservative Republican Leadership Committee (CRLC).  Along with Adam Josefczyk and Justin Powell, he is a co-founder of Ohio Conservative Review and formerly served as OCR’s executive editor.

Michael writes regularly for PJ Media Parenting, PJ Media Lifestyle, and The Philos Project (“promoting positive Christian engagement in the Middle East”). His writing also has appeared at The Federalist, the Washington Free Beacon, and Canon & Culture.

Michael graduated cum laude from Hillsdale College in 2008 with a B.A. in English and emphases on American literature, history, and government.  While there Michael was employed as Editor-in-Chief of the Tower Light, the college literary publication, and as a research assistant to President Larry P. Arnn.  He also was chapter president of the Lambda Iota Tau Literature Honorary and treasurer of Praxis Political Economy Club.  Over summers, Michael served as acting communications manager for the Buckeye Institute for Public Policy Solutions in Columbus.

Torn between entering a Master’s program at Boston College and going straight into teaching the Great Books, he and his wife, Maggie, moved to Malden, Massachusetts.  At the Newsweek– and U.S. News & World Report-acclaimed Mystic Valley Regional Charter School, Michael taught American, British, and world literature.  Teaching at the International Baccalaureate (IB) level provided a welcome crucible for intellectual growth and academic study.  After three years on the east coast, Michael and Maggie followed the Lord’s leading to return with their son to their home state.  Michael teaches Advanced Placement (AP) U.S. Government & Politics and Honors American Literature at a Christian school in southwest Ohio.

Michael lives in awe of his wife, a gifted mother of two, registered nurse, and administrative assistant whose practical wisdom knows no bounds.  She is his most trusted advisor and greatest friend.
