Carol Brockfield is the author of three poetry collections, She Walks, At Leaf's Edge and Knife in Hand, that address a single theme. Her poems have been published in flashquake, The Hiss Quarterly, The Cimarron Review, Women Writers, the Oregon State Poetry Association's Verseweavers and several Napa Valley College Enclave anthologies. She is a past member of the Napa Valley Writers' Collective, and chairs the Rogue Valley chapter of the Oregon State Poetry Association, which strives to promote an appreciation of poetry in local schools and among the general public.
Recognizing the need for poetry in our lives, the Oregon Poetic Voices Project (OPV) has begun to create a comprehensive digital archive of poetry readings that will complement existing print collections of poetry across the state.
"We each carry lines of poetry with us. Words that others have written float back to us and stay with us, indelibly. We clutch these "life lines" like totems, repeat them as mantras, and summon them for comfort and laughter."
-Academy of American Poets
