JENNIFER BOSVELD is director of Pudding House Innovative Writers Programs which umbrellas many other areas of her work as a poet. Her poems have appeared in The Sun, Hiram Poetry Review, The Chiron Review, Wind, Negative Capability, The Christian Science Monitor, Psychopoetica, Heaven Bone, Cornfield Review, Birmingham Poetry Review, Pig Iron, and hundreds of other literary journals and magazines. Her poems also appear in anthologies including The Coffeehouse Poetry Anthology where editor Larry Smith calls Jennifer "a one-woman poetry revolution"--an out-of-the-blue comment that Jen can’t help be proud of. She says "The first time I read that I had to get out in the middle of the room and puff up like a toad! I decided to accept it because it gives me something to live up to--not that I ever will." Jennifer has for 30 years led single-day, weekend, and year-long poetry workshops focusing on poetry writing, revising, reading, performance, and publishing. In conjunction with the National Association for Poetry Therapy, Jennifer presented (with Steve Abbott) the day-long workshop "Mom, The Flag, and Rock & Roll: Writing the Sound (and not-so-sound) Tracks of Your Life" at The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in conjunction with their Education Department.
