Jennifer Bosveld has appeared in The Sun, Chiron Review, Heaven Bone, hundreds of magazines and journals, and various anthologies including The Coffeehouse Poetry Anthology where editor Larry Smith calls Jennifer “a one woman poetry revolution.” She is founder of American Poets Opposed to Executions and a representative for Poets4Peace. She has presented readings, workshops, and lectures at The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, various universities and writers conferences, and she’s a frequent presenter for the National Association for Poetry Therapy and recipient of their Pioneer Award. She has several Pushcart nominations and received an Ohio Arts Council Individual Artist Fellowship in Poetry.

Jennifer’s work appears in three textbooks including her textbook anthology, Elastic Ekphrastic, which has been adopted by college creative writing programs as have her anthology, Fresh Water: Poems from the Rivers, Lakes and Streams, and her demonstration chapbook, Jazz Kills the Paperboy. Jennifer owns Pudding House Publications, the largest literary small press in America and edits Pudding Magazine: The International Journal of Applied Poetry. The sign over her computer reads “Do something for someone who least expects it.” Her every day and night is spent with the poets of America through email, phone, the mails, or at events. Her constant desire is for a few days away with the right person writing and not talking all that much to each other.
