Charlotte Louise Nystrom is a creative writer and poet from the rocky coast of Maine. When she isn't writing or reading, Charlotte enjoys quiet pastimes-- painting, yoga, hiking and climbing mountains, camping, drinking too much coffee, and discovering new music.
Charlotte strives to capture words that make the world a little softer by celebrating its beauty and bridging connections. She is excited to share her poetry through a debut chapbook titled Falling Skies. This short yet powerful collection attempts to capture the electric charge of the hard moments—the ones where we find ourselves falling.
You may also explore her visceral, visual wordplay in Word Paintings, a fresh poetry collection co-written with author Larry Yoke. Charlotte's short stories and poetry also appear in Unfinished Chapters, Finding Mr. Right, Dreamers Writers Magazine, and Maine’s Best Emerging Poets 2019, and Chicken Soup for the Soul: Grieving, Loss and Healing (2022). Her poetry has garnered awards including first place in the Dream Quest One competition.
Charlotte is also a prolific ghostwriter, preparing to take a more worldly form. Watch for her debut novel, Layla. A captivating adventure featuring an unlikely heroine of the goldrush era.
