Mary Cornish was a writer and illustrator of children’s books who decided to explore new literary forms after developing a progressive illness in her drawing hand. At the age of 50, she went back to school at Sarah Lawrence College in creative non-fiction. A professor recognized something she hadn’t: “Are you sure you’re not a poet?” the teacher asked. Cornish realized she was, and had always been.
She continued her studies at Stanford University, on a Wallace Stegner Fellowship, and has published works in such prestigious publications as Poetry magazine, Poetry Northwest, and the New England Review. She currently teaches creative writing at Western Washington University. Former national poet laureate Billy Collins was mentor for her thesis. He writes of her work: “…her poems can braid together sight and feeling so as to produce a delicacy rarely found in contemporary poetry.”
She lives in Bellingham, Washington.
