Kathleen M Quinlan is an American poet living and working in England. She is a member of the Second Light Network of UK women poets. Her poetry, featured on this site, draws inspiration from her childhood in rural Maine, her formal education as a social scientist, and her travels.
Kathleen's debut full length collection, Moorings (Cinnamon Press) launched in October 2016.
"Tight, lyrical pieces and compelling narrative sequences combine in this excellent debut collection that convinces with precise language and acute observation. Charting a narrative arc from a childhood in Maine, the sense of journeying is never far beneath the surface as the poet's persona forges new identities. From the meaning of 'home' to the sense of spiritual quest that moves beyond inherited faith, these are poems that are authentic and honest, firmly rooted in the natural world and seen through the eyes of a keen intelligence."
