Scott Thompson is a poet, non-fiction author, editor, photographer, and education foundation officer. He holds a BA in English Literature from Principia College and an MA in English Literature from Northeastern University. He lives with his wife, daughter, and cat in Glen Rock, New Jersey. Praise for his first book, Leading From the Eye of the Storm: Spirituality and Public School Improvement (Rowman & Littlefield, 2005), includes the following endorsement from author Parker J. Palmer: “The America I love now suffers from a toxic brew of fear, cynicism, and false bravado that is taking a terrific toll on everything from individual to institutional life. If we are to deal with the spiritual emptiness behind all this – and find responses that honor the needs of a pluralistic democracy – our public schools must become places where questions of meaning and purpose are taken seriously. Here is a superbly written book that will help educational leaders step up to that challenge. Using tools ranging from poetry, to social analysis, to interviews with change agents, to case studies of transformation, Scott Thompson makes a powerful contribution to our understanding of the spiritual depths that are hidden, but not lost, in our individual and collective lives.”

Aerial Muse: poems
by Scott Thompson
Published: September 23, 2013
Most poems in Aerial Muse were written in the sky, on commercial flights. Others include birds, real or imagined. But the poems are less about transportation than about transformation and transcendence. Often the poems take flight -- imagination lifting from the ground of everyday details into wild, blue wonder. Acclaimed poet Naomi Shihab Nye summarized the collection with one word: "glorious."
