Damen O’Brien

Damen O’Brien is wearing an all black zipper shirt and sitting in front of a dark background which makes his bright blond hair (and white skin) pop; his smile is minimal and he looks into the lens with intense eyes, from under dark eyebrows.

Damen O’Brien is a multi-award-winning Australian poet. Damen’s prizes include the Moth Poetry Prize, the Peter Porter Poetry Prize and the New Millennium Poetry Competition. His poems have been published in journals all over the world. Damen’s first book of poetry, Animals With Human Voices, is available through Recent Work Press. [update provided in 2023]
