About the Poet: PJ Thomas

Born and raised in Toronto, PJ Thomas relocated to Peterborough to attend classes and became editor-in-chief of the Trent University newspaper. She went on to edit several local publications and was the first executive director of the 4th Line Theatre Company. Thomas also promoted contemporary Canadian music until becoming disabled. She has since marked a triumphant return to literature with two novels published to critical acclaim. In autumn 2020 she launched her first book of poetry, Undertow. Thomas wrote lyrics that were nominated for a 2021 Juno Award as part of Rick Fines’ album, Solar Powered Too. In 2021 her work was showcased twice in the online publication, Poetry Present, by Cobourg’s Poet Laureate. Thomas was one of five poets featured in the 2021 National Poetry Month Show and Tell Poetry Series Poster Project. In June of this year, she was accepted into the League of Canadian Poets. Thomas’ poems have appeared in The River Magazine, The 2021 Festival of Light and Dark, and will be included in the Bill Bissett anthology, Poemdemic. Thomas makes her home with her cat by the wide Otonabee River.
