Jolen Whitworth is a full-blooded Celtic poetess born in Chicago, Illinois.
As a Mother, Grandmother and Witch, she developed a challenging, inspirational and passionate voice. Her work is accessible, honest and striking. She’s outspoken, generous and tireless in her dedication to her craft.
Over the last few years, Jolen has developed into a skilled Romantic poet who let nothing stand in her way to establishing an authoritative poetic voice. It is the voice of the disinherited, the broken and the lost transfigured by a lyrical, visionary glimpse into the redemptive power of love.
Jolen lives in Leeds with her husband, where she works as an editor and administrator of a creative writing site. Her work has been featured in several anthologies, magazines and online communities. She enjoys competitions and her work has won numerous awards.
Besides poetry, Jolen writes fiction, erotica and songs. She is a proud member of the Society of Women Writers and Journalists as well as the Poets and Writers Society. Along with her two writing partners, she helped create the formidable trio known as Bad Penny Productions.
