Cathy Thorne

Cathy Thorne, a spontaneous typewriter poet based in Toronto, has seamlessly combined her passion for poetry, people and old-school typewriters. With a background in improvisational theatre, creative writing and visual arts, Cathy writes on-the-spot personalized poems at weddings and events, creating thoughtful keepsakes for guests to take home. She is the author of Unlightenment: A Guide to Higher Consciousness for Everyday People (Adams Media, Simon & Schuster.) She's been interviewed on CBC Radio's Metro Morning and Here and Now, and her commissions include poetry for Toronto Arts Foundation. Her chapbook of poetry is entitled Shift and was made possible in part by funding from a Mentorship Microgrant from The Writers' Union of Canada and The Consultation Fund from The League of Canadian Poets.
