Mitzie Thorne (August 10,1965 / Jamaica; West Indies)
Biography of Mitzie Thorne
I was born in a small hospital at a place in the hills of Trelawny called Ulster Spring. I was raised in an even smaller area, called Joe-Hut. As a little girl, I recited poems in both church and school. I even participated in school poetry competitions on the local level.
Years have passed and I am still a lover of poetry. However, I take the time to create my own poems from the heart. I am now a teacher who is using poetry as one of the mediums to help my elementary students foster a love for writing. It is my hope that as they are able to discover the poet within themselves, that they, too, will be inspired to write.
