Ph.D. Comparative Literature
University of California, Berkeley
Thomas has had a long career in editing, teaching, and writing.
While in graduate school he taught 8th and 9th grade at The Academy, a private school in Berkeley, California.
After Berkeley, he was books editor of The Christian Science Monitor in the 1980s. In the 90’s, he worked in two positions in publishing: as general humanities acquisitions editor at Harvard University Press, and as managing editor at Bostonia, the alumni magazine of Boston University. Meanwhile, he ran a book agency, publishing works in sociology, history, and literature.
From 2007 to 2011 he was managing editor at Single Island Press. Since the 90s, Thomas has been deeply involved in adult continuing education, both at Brown University and as a private consultant. More recently he has combined his love of the arts of the book in the publishing program and his love of teaching by directing slow reading groups and tutorials for individual writers.
