Return to all Poetry Seminar faculty and fellows

Cammy Thomas’ first book of poems, Cathedral of Wish, received the 2006 Norma Farber First Book Award from the Poetry Society of America.  Her second book, Inscriptions, has just come out.  Both are available from Four Way Books.  Her poems have recently appeared in Appalachia, Bateau, The Classical Outlook, The Healing Muse, and Spillway.  A fellowship from the Ragdale Foundation helped her complete her new book.  Thomas wrote her PhD dissertation at Berkeley on the poetry of Alfred, Lord Tennyson.  An MFA in poetry followed, from the MFA Program for Writers at Warren Wilson College.  She lives in Lexington, Massachusetts, and teaches literature and creative writing at Concord Academy.
