jenn-head-down-wht-border-500x500I’m a multi-genre writer (poetry, fiction, nonfiction) and a performance artist. In my writing, I wrestle with questions of gender, power, identity, complicity, and harm. Even so, I still find the world beautiful.

Meet Me Halfway, my collection of short stories about race relations in Milwaukee, was published by University of Wisconsin Press in spring 2015. It was chosen by the Wisconsin Center for the Book as its 2016 Selection (Wisconsin Book of the Year), among other honors.

I serve as a board member of the Driftless Writing Center.
