Fool’s Gold: The Column

Fool’s Gold, the column, cuts right to the core of such universal matters as the environment, sports, technology, politics, and bears. If you have never cut to the core of a bear, then believe me when I say, neither have I. But when I do, I will spin it into Fool’s Gold.

Zach Hively has the rare gift of delivering a solid humor column on the regular. – New Mexico Mercury on Facebook

Fool’s Gold solders the antics of Annie Dillard with the gravitas of Stephen Colbert. The editor of the New Mexico Mercury, V.B. Price, says the column has “a perfect tone, full of verbal and narrative surprises.” Dave Barry has called me—in writing!—“my personal idol” and a “Fellow Humor Professional.”

Fool’s Gold won first place award in 2018 and 2017 from the Society of Professional Journalists’ Top of the Rockies Excellence in Journalism Awards for personal/humor columns.

Quirky and hilarious, these columns felt authentic and fresh. The writer’s relatable topics and uniquely funny angles on them made his work a standout. – SPJ Top of the Rockies, 2018
