Ollie O'Neill is a Femme Dyke, writer, and feminist originally from London.
In 2017, Out-Spoken Press published her pamphlet of poetry Ways of Coping, a poetic research project exploring the relationship between psychiatry, misogyny, and the pathologisation of women who survive sexual violence. In 2020, her first full length collection of poetry What We Are Given was published by Write Bloody UK, looking at identity and horizontal lineage and inheritance.
She has read her work in venues such as The Institute of Contemporary Arts, Soho Theatre, and The Royal Festival Hall, as well as at festivals including Cheltenham Literature Festival, Bradford Literature Festival, and Wilderness Festival. Her work has been published in the likes of Magma, Fourteen Poems, and Bath Magg.
Her work centres around class, Lesbianism, and the female experience. She is also interested in the physicality of text, and how in print making and collage, text becomes a process and a physical object in the world.
