Poems on Music/Ekphrastic Poetry
Jessica is a poet and essayist. When not helping people in front-line legal work or teaching, she is with her young family, keeping company with books, learning something, writing, or buried in her record collection. She is a creative old soul — too serious and too enthusiastic— embracing idealism and pragmatism. She writes for music, fleeting images and the liminal spaces of emotion.
Her work can be found in the 2021 poetry anthology “A Poetry of Place: Journeys Across New Westminster,” Literary Impulse Quarterly, The Royal City Literary Arts Society Wordplay at Work ezine and through Medium publications: Loose Words, Assemblage, Scribe, A Philospher’s Stone, Apeiron Blog, The Junction, The Weekly Knob, PSILY, Weeds & Wildflowers, A Cornered Gurl, The Riff, and others. Jessica is also an editor and writer for Scrittura. She lives in British Columbia.
