About Caroline

Caroline Hardaker lives in the north east of England and earned her BA (English Literature) and MA (Cultural and Heritage Studies) from Newcastle University. She writes a lot of things, and her main problem is limiting herself to one idea at once, or maybe two ideas, or three…

Her non-fiction work has been published widely in print and online (some under her maiden name Caroline Brown), mostly exploring a philosophical issue or two. Caroline has also worked with various organisations and community groups advocating the holistic benefits of writing and making.

Caroline’s poetry has been published worldwide, most recently or forthcoming in The Stinging Fly, The Emma Press, Neon Magazine, Allegro, and Shoreline of Infinity. This blog was set up in late 2015, and you can see her publication credits since then via the link on the homepage. Her first little poetry collection (‘Bone Ovation’) will be launched in October 2017 by Valley Press.

Caroline is is a poetry and drama reviewer for the Three Drops From a Cauldron e-zine, and is also the In-House blogger for Mud Press. She is currently working on her first literary novel, her second poetry collection, a collection of short stories, and a children’s book. She does like to multitask. Her next grand plan will be to finally design and write the graphic novels swimming around in her thought cloud, but who knows what’ll happen next?
