American Samizdat

Jehanne’s seventh book of poems was one of the winners of the 2018 Diode Editions Book Contest. American Samizdat, which will published in 2019, is a book-length poetic sequence that looks to the work of Polish poets Zbigniew Herbert, Czesław Miłosz, and Witold Gombrowicz to imagine verse written in an America where the First Amendment no longer exists.


throughsmoke: an essay in notes

Jehanne’s first book of creative nonfiction was recently accepted for publication and will be published by New Rivers Press in 2019! Continuing the work she began with The Book of Scented Things, throughsmoke is a book-length essay about the connection between perfume and poetry, two art forms often dismissed as frivolous. 


Work-in-Progress

Jehanne is in the process of drafting two new poetry manuscripts. In Wild Kingdom, she explores the world of higher education, examining the hidden, birdlike ferocity of academia. Simple Machines is a collection of sonnets and sonnet crowns that consider the ways that relationships, political systems, friendships, and communities can fall apart.

And now that throughsmoke has found a home, Jehanne is also writing a new collection of lyrical essays, Exhibition, a Self-Portrait.
