Cammy Thomas

Cammy Thomas’s first book, Cathedral of Wish, received the Norma Farber First Book Award from the Poetry Society of America. A fellowship from the Ragdale Foundation helped her complete her second, Inscriptions. Both were published by Four Way Books. Her poems have appeared in numerous journals, and in Poems in the Aftermath, an anthology. Two of her poems under the title Far Past War are the text for a choral work by her sister, composer Augusta Read Thomas. Far Past War premieres at the National Cathedral in Washington, DC in 2022. She taught college and high school English and creative writing for many years, and now teaches ancient and Renaissance texts to adults. She lives in the Boston area and can be found at cammythomas.com.
