“Since 2004, Dr. Michael Wyndham Thomas has helped develop and spearhead the workshops for the Key West Robert Frost Poetry Festival. His hands-on teaching skills make poetry exciting for even the novice; his depth of knowledge is truly impressive.

Because he has endeared himself to everyone associated with the festival—and to many others who live on this island at the southernmost point in the United States—Michael is fondly referred to as the Poet at Large in the Conch Republic Navy.

With heartfelt thanks from The Robert Frost Poetry Festival Committee, Key West, Florida.”

-Barbara Bowers, writer and journalist, member of the Festival Committee.
