Theresa Hickey’s poems reflect a love of the coastal communities in which she’s lived or to which she has traveled. Views of Buzzards Bay and lovely Cypress trees are just beyond the desk from which she writes in her Dartmouth, MA home.
In her third collection of poetry, Shy, published by Finishing Line Press (2020), Theresa’s words embrace natural surroundings and seasonal changes she has come to know as they inspire her quiet time and motivate her writing. Retired from Salem State University where she wrote media releases in support of the Center for the Arts, her writing takes on a more creative bent without regular deadlines to meet. A wife over 50 years, mother of four, grandmother of seven, she enjoys daily walks and appreciates the laughter and surprises that devotion to family life has brought.
Her poems have appeared in Still Point Arts Quarterly, Halcyon Days, New England Memories and other journals.
