My name is Katie Doherty. I am a writer and bibliophile. I have had two poetry anthologies published: Your Black Opium (Paper and Ink Literary Zine 2017) and Interiors (Analog Submission Press 2018).

My work has been featured in A Cafe in Space: The Anais Nin Literary Journal Volume 14, Spit Poet Zine, I edited Sunny Side Down: A Charles Bukowski Tribute, two peculiar chapbooks called Obscurum and co-wrote a collection of essays on identity and creativity – A Second Birth. I also co-edited an all female zine with Martin Appleby’s Paper & Ink – Issue 12 ‘Girls To The Front’.

Black Flowers is a labour of love, a letter to all things creative, a record of everything interesting to me as a writer and a reader.
