Holly L. Thomas
As an editor,
I help you get your writing ready for the world.
As a poet,
I give language to wonder and discovery.
As an artist,
I try to map trails my words haven't walked.
I have 30+ years of writing and editing behind me, including 16 as a technical editor for Microsoft Office and 13 as a land use and environmental planner.
I've edited websites, blogs, how-to articles, novels, memoirs, book proposals, workbooks, presentation decks, children's books, and community master plans. I also help clients plan their website content strategy and overhaul bloated sites.
My book, Pluck Another Apple, Eve, And Finish It, was published in 2019 by Sun Portal Press. In 2020 I received an Emerging Poets award from the Allied Arts Foundation. Book #2 is in the works. I also paint, draw, and work with mixed media.
As soap and water replace holy water,
let us bless them.
As we wash,
let counting seconds
be holy too.
As celebrants wash their hands before a ritual,
let our hands summon us
over and over and over and over again—
at the wrists.
