Thomas March
As a Certified Integral Coach, I empower clients who are experiencing change, whether in life or in work, or want to renew their purpose and direction. With decades of experience as a writer, educator, and performer, I offer a creativity-based approach to identifying and nurturing each client’s most powerful essential quality. The work we do together creates space for this quality to emerge in your daily life. Together we build the foundation of meaningful transformation in a way that is fully aligned with your most fundamental values and purpose. My work as a coach is inevitably informed by my life as a poet, essayist, performer, and educator. I am the author of Aftermath (2018), a poetry collection that poet Joan Larkin selected for The Word Works Hilary Tham Capital Collection. Since 2018, I have been the host and curator of Poetry/Cabaret, a bi-monthly "variety salon" performance series in New York City that brings together poets, comedians, and cabaret performers to share their responses to a common theme. Broadway World has called Poetry/Cabaret "a daring, edgy, and divinely human way of looking at art and artists." With painter Valerie Mendelson, I am the co-creator of A Good Mixer, a text and visual hybrid project that imagines a virtual cocktail party in the form of paintings of people’s cocktails and poems representing the thoughts and desires of their drinkers. In recent years, I have written and performed my "tragi-comic" monologues at a number of venues in New York City, including Ars Nova, The Duplex, Joe’s Pub, The Peoples Improv Theater, and Sid Gold’s Request Room. With PEN America’s Prison Writing Program, I have served as a judge for the Prison Writing Contest’s poetry panel and for the inaugural L’Engle-Rahman Award for Mentorship. A past recipient of the Norma Millay Ellis Fellowship in Poetry, from Millay Arts, I also received an Artist/Writer grant from The Vermont Studio Center. I was named a National Arts Club Fellow for 2023-24. For over 25 years, I have lived in New York City, where I teach at The Brearley School and in Barnard College’s Pre-College Program.
