Caribou is Thomas Mitchell's second full-length collection of poetry. The poems are humble, straightforward, generous, and range from the sublime to the mysterious, always with lyrical clarity. In poet Dennis Schmitz's words, "These poems live in the implicit, in hints and not-quite-kept secrets." Thomas Mitchell has an unswerving purpose in these poems, and he shares it with us.
Thomas Mitchell studied writing at California State University, Sacramento where he received his MA in English, and worked with the poet, Dennis Schmitz. He received his MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Montana, where he studied with Richard Hugo, Madeline DeFrees, and William Kittredge. His poems and essays have appeared in numerous journals and anthologies. He taught middle school in Southern Oregon for 31 years, and now can be found walking the beaches along the Oregon coast.
