Overview

A cross between a journal and a conceptual art project, 'Dear Monday…' is Kevin J. O'Conner's first book that has nothing to do with poetry. What started out as a Facebook post on a frustrating Monday quickly turned into something of an experiment, in the form of an ongoing series of love notes to the days of the week, posted as blog entries. The notes themselves, each no more than about three sentences long, range from humorous observations about the day to existential queries, with various stops in between. They are purposely vague, as you might expect from love notes; this vague quality encourages readers to wonder what might be going on from day to day, and to draw their own conclusions. 'Dear Monday…' collects the first 365 entries in this series in book form.

About the Author

Kevin J. O’Conner (56) is not your typical poet. After 30 years of writing only sporadically, Kevin J. O’Conner returned to poetry in 2013—first as a creative exercise, then for the therapeutic benefits. Since 2015, he writes every day, exploring the craft of poetry through monthly writing challenges—‘my ongoing effort to write something that doesn’t sound like something I would write’, he says. Kevin’s poems explore isolation, memory, life’s small moments, and the experience of starting over at ‘a certain age’—always with an emphasis on straightforward expression. As of Spring 2019, Kevin has published eleven collections of poems, the latest of which is WISHES SOMETIMES HAVE CONSEQUENCES, plus four volumes of ‘love notes’ to the days of the week. His poems have also appeared in Raven Chronicles, Spindrift, The CDC Poetry Project, Lament for the Dead, and the anthology VOICES THAT MATTER, and as part of the Clay? VI (2016) exhibit at Kirkland Arts Center. When not writing poetry, Kevin can be found copy-editing documents from far-flung places, attending open-mic readings, designing books, and contemplating what to cook now that he is tired of soup. He lives in Bellingham with his mom's neurotic cat, Cleo III. (updated 28 October 2019)
