Since the only poem Carolyn Martin wrote in high school was red-penciled “extremely maudlin,” she is amazed that she has continued to write. After forty years in the academic and business worlds, she is blissfully retired in Clackamas, OR, where she also gardens and plays with creative friends. Her poems have appeared in publications throughout the US and UK, and her second collection, The Way a Woman Knows, was released in 2015 by The Poetry Box, Portland, OR (thewayawomanknows.com). She is still searching for all the ways women know that she hasn’t discovered yet.
