Aqua Books is pleased to present Jennifer Crow as part of the poetry series Speaking Crow.
The Crow starts at 7:00 pm on February 1 and is followed by two open-mic sets, with short breaks in between.
Jennifer Still is the author of two full-length books of poetry: Saltations, and Girlwood.
The word “saltation” has biological and geological meanings, but in general terms it means to dance or leap about.
Still’s poems are always questing and considering: after a family origin; what a texture might mean; how an emotion transmogrifies. In Still’s world, the air has hinges and the human heart is a fractal economy.
Jennifer Still is one of the founders of JackPine Press, and has worked for Grain magazine.
In 2008, her work won the Saskatchewan CBC Poetry Face-Off, and Girlwood won first prize in the Saskatchewan Writers’ Guild’s John V. Hicks manuscript awards.
