About Kevin J. O'Conner

Kevin J. O’Conner (54) is not your typical poet.

After 30 years of writing only sporadically, Kevin J. O’Conner returned to poetry in 2013—first as a creative exercise, then for the therapeutic benefits. Since 2015, he writes every day, exploring the craft of poetry through monthly writing challenges—‘my ongoing effort to write something that doesn’t sound like something I would write’, he says. Kevin’s poems explore isolation, memory, life’s small moments, and the experience of starting over at ‘a certain age’—always with an emphasis on straightforward expression.

As of late 2017, Kevin has published ten collections of poems, the latest of which is 8: EIGHT-WORD POEMS (due October 20th in print, October 27th in e-book form), plus three volumes of ‘love notes’ to the days of the week (a fourth volume is forthcoming).

When not writing poetry, Kevin can be found copy-editing documents from far-flung places, attending open-mic readings, designing books, and contemplating what to cook now that he is tired of soup. He lives near Seattle with his cat, Trixie.
