Jennifer Franklin earned degrees from Brown University and Columbia University School of the Arts. Her poems debuted in the Paris Review’s “Ten New Poets” issue in 1996. Her first full-length collection, Looming, won the 14th Annual Editor’s Prize from Elixir Press and was published in April 2015.
Franklin’s poetry has appeared widely in literary magazines and journals such as Gettysburg Review, Pequod, Southwest Review, Western Humanities Review, New England Review, The Nation, Salmagundi, Boston Review, Poetry Daily, and Guernica. Three poems from her third manuscript appeared on poets.org as part of the “poem-a-day series.” Franklin is co-editor of Slapering Hol Press, the small press imprint of The Hudson Valley Writers’ Center. She teaches poetry workshops at The Hudson Valley Writers’ Center and lives in New York City.
