Blossom Thom’s poetry explores the constructs of language and of society by examining the disparity between the limits we set for ourselves and the limits that others, or society, set for us. The subject of her poems is the experiences of Black people. Her perspective creates work that presents an alternative to the preferred narrative. She is the author of #HashtagRelief (Gaspereau Press, 2017) and her poetry has appeared in literary magazines and anthologies. Blossom trains her critical eye as poetry co-editor and diversity consultant for Jonah magazine. She shares her love of poetry by designing and leading poetry workshops.
