Walt Curtis is the subject of one comic documentary and one serious documentary. He has appeared as an actor in films, has been portrayed by an actor in a film adaptation of one of his books, and has made films himself.

Born in Olympia, Washington and raised in Oregon City, he began writing poetry as a Portland State University student.  A partial bibliography of his works, compiled in 2008 by James Honsik, reveals a long career of steady productivity.
