Carolyn O’Connell

Carolyn O’Connell is a local poet who regularly attends Rhythm & Muse and was the first to read at the open mic at the first R&M in 2007.

With liberal use of colour, and a willingness to tackle a full range of emotions; joy, nostalgia, fear, horror and regret, Carolyn O’Connell’s well-crafted poetry collection reflects on the domestic, delights in the exotic, and bravely confronts uncomfortable aspects of war with a sincere and honest empathy.

Her new collection, Timelines, was published by Indigo Dreams in September 2014.
