Cleopatra Mathis

Poet ~ Writer
Professor of Creative Writing

A long-time resident of the north country, Cleopatra still considers herself primarily a Southern poet, with deep roots in that landscape. The emphasis on the natural world that has always informed her work comes from her childhood in Louisiana.

Since 1982, Cleopatra has taught at Dartmouth College, where she founded the creative writing program. She is the Frederick Sessions Beebe '35 Professor in the Art of Writing.
