Hello. I'm Steve O'Connor. I'm a creative writing lecturer based in West Yorkshire. I teach creative writing for Bradford Libraries and other groups/organisations. I'm also a poet. I'm a big fan of guest slots and open mic. I had the pleasure of hosting WRITE OUT LOUD's poetry night in Sale before handing it over to Rod Tame. I did a lot of poetry things in the North West. I then disappeared for a while. I'm back now. I co-edited The Best Of Manchester Poets (Puppywolf Press). My work can be found in - I Know Where The City Has Wings (Bad Language), Best Of Manchester Poets (Puppywolf), Blank Pages, Transparency (poetry anthology published by Crocus Books), Citizen 32 magazine and various other fine publications. 'Ey up!
Examples of my writing are in the blog entries.
