Shae O'Brien grew up in the Pacific Northwest, and it has bred her to have a love for music, coffee, the ocean, and rain. Her love for writing was planted at a young age, with the encouragement of beautiful family and inspiring teachers, and grew into a passion she cannot go a day without. During the day, Shae is also an English teacher, promoting the art of the written word among the youth of Austin. Her writing has been featured in publications such as Off The Wookie, AIPF Di-verse-city Anthology 2012, and TWENTY: Poems In Memoriam. She recently self-published her first chapbook, "Truths Unspoken", which takes the reader on a poetic journey through the passion, love, heartbreak, and rebirth of a relationship. You may find her on any given night writing or performing her work around Austin, TX.

Featured Poet at Austin International Poetry Festival 2013

I am honored and excited to announce that I have been chosen as a Featured Poet at this year's Austin International Poetry Festival. As a featured poet, I will be leading a workshop on poetry techniques, reading at various venues, and will be featured in the AIPF Di-Verse-City 2013 Anthology.

This festival gave me the courage to first share my poetry with the public in 2009, and I am very humbled to now be representing this festival for the incredible city of Austin.The festival is April 11th-14th and includes a line-up of enthralling talent, a variety of educational workshops, entertaining readings, and social activities where you can meet fellow writers, editors, publishers, and more. You don't want to miss out!

For those of you interested in attending this awesome festival, you can find more information and register at www.aipf.org. Also, make sure to follow me and sign up for email updates, and I will post more details as they are finalized. I will be selling copies of my chapbook, Truths Unspoken, and would love to see you there. Thank you all for your support--as long as you keep reading, I will keep writing!

Write on!
