Tom Gotsill is a Cape Cod writer and educator who can’t quite escape his Jersey Guy instincts. Those include his pull-no-punches observations of a nation operating under the influence of the benighted and ethically impaired. See Tom’s essay and op-ed collection, Logos/Ethos, to enter the world of this genetically predisposed skeptic.


Had Tom been born in another time, one ideally suited to his world view, it would have been The Enlightenment. Most Logos / Ethos pieces  illustrate his interest in the preservation and advancement of reason, virtue, freethought, the protection of civil and human rights, education and civil democracy (assuming an adequate philosopher-king cannot be found).



Tom is a member of the Dramatists Guild of America and is an active playwright. He is a repeat-winner of the Jeremiah Kaplan Award for New Plays presented by Eventide Theatre Company, Cape Cod: To Be in the Game (2011) and Colonel of Reason (2018).
