Tessa Fontaine, Jessica Jacobs and Heather Newton discuss their multifaceted careers and how they sustain momentum.
Xpress continues its celebration of Poetry Month with a look at local, award-winning poet Jessica Jacobs’ work, “Because You Waited for Me to Fly Your First Kite,” from her 2019 collection, Take Me With You, Wherever You’re Going.
“If I can write something that creates that kind of connection, it’s not just me navel-gazing,” says Brown.
Author and poet Jessica Jacobs discusses her collection, Pelvis with Distance, at Malaprop’s on Thursday, May 28. She’ll also read as part the Altamont Poetry Series on Monday, June 15.
