Cicily has been writing stories and poetry since she was a child. She studied creative writing at Smith and the University of Iowa. In her senior year at Smith, she won the Corbin Prize for poetry. She belongs to a local writing group, the Wednesday Poets. Influences on her work include Ezra Pound, H.D., and T. S. Eliot.

Cicily is currently at work on two novels, Uburu and The Blue Bustier, as well as a seasonal poetry cycle—a poem for each month of the year. Here are March, April, and May from that work in progress:
