From English teacher to management trainer to retiree, Carolyn Martin has journeyed from New Jersey to Oregon to discover Douglas firs, months of rain, and perfect summers.  The author of three books on generational diversity in the workplace, she now focuses on creative writing, photography, and her garden. 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 (www.thewayawomanknows.com). Currently, she is working on two chapbooks and learning how to turn realistic photos into abstract art.

  1. Well, that was startling. I once belonged to Rotary, and then quit – too many white men, too many silly rituals, too many narrow minds pretending to be generous. And my name is Denny (but I’m a girl) so your first line really caught my attention. You captured that nexus of Rotary and creativity – a null set.
