About

Kevin J. O’Conner is not your typical poet.

He has not won any awards, earned advanced degrees, or been published in a long list of journals (only a couple). He has published eight collections of poems, the latest of which is called …but for the thoughts running through my mind, and three volumes of ‘love notes’ to the days of the week, ‘Dear Monday…’,‘Dear Tuesday…’, and‘Dear Wednesday…’.

When not writing poetry, Kevin can be found copy-editing documents from far-flung places, attending open mics, designing books, taking photographs, and figuring out what to make for dinner now that he is tiring of soup. He lives near Seattle with his semi-neurotic cat, Trixie; Lucy (a/k/a the alarm cat) lives on as the Alarm Cat Press mascot.
