Originally from Virginia, and transplanted to Canada, Wisconsin, and the Twin Cities, Jenniey now lives in Iowa City (surprise!). She teaches whenever possible and does social media, reading, and editing for various lit journals and authors. She also holds a regular job. She has an MFA in poetry of all things, and is currently working on a dystopian novel.
Her work on a hybrid nonfiction/poetry/visual manuscript (a series of experimentations focused on the theme of displacement) is currently being supported by a Sustainable Arts Foundation grant—an honor for which she is unabashedly proud and exceedingly grateful.
