Originally from Virginia and transplanted to the Midwest, Jenniey now lives in Iowa City. In addition to her day job, she teaches writing and does reading and editing for various lit journals and authors. She has an MFA in poetry, of all things, and is currently finishing 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 award—an honor for which she is unabashedly proud and exceedingly grateful.
