Cammy Thomas

Cammy Thomas’ first book of poems, Cathedral of Wish, received the 2006 Norma Farber First Book Award from the Poetry Society of America.  Both it and her second book, Inscriptions, are published by Four Way Books.  A fellowship from the Ragdale Foundation helped her complete Inscriptions.  Her poems have recently appeared or are forthcoming in Appalachia, The Classical Outlook, The Maine Review, Off The Coast, Spillway and Third Wednesday.  Cammy grew up on Long Island, and was educated primarily in California, writing her PhD dissertation at Berkeley on Tennyson’s poetry.  A degree 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.
