Cecelia Bellomy hails from the Midwest. She went to a football college, but took more interest in poetry and theology than playoffs and passes. So now she’s getting her Mdiv at Yale Divinity School where she’s pursuing ordained ministry and arts therapy, especially for those who have suffered spiritual trauma. She loves reading and writing poetry that explodes into moments of surprising, transcendent emotion or theophany while still remaining hospitable to its readers. She is from the Midwest, after all.
