Jennifer Perrine Oregon

Jennifer (JP) Perrine is the author of four books of poetry: Again, The Body Is No Machine, In the Human Zoo, and No Confession, No Mass. JP’s current writing projects include Beautiful Outlaw, a book of poetry composed through elaborate constraints; In the Interest of Time, a collection of short science fiction; Missing/Wanted, a speculative memoir-in-essays; and Nature Is All of Us, a play based on stories of Black, Indigenous, Asian American, and Latinx Oregonians’ experiences with nature and wilderness. Their recent work has been recognized through the Arts and Culture Diversity and Inclusion Award from the Asian American Journalists Association, an Oregon Humanities Community Storytelling Fellowship, a Make | Learn | Build grant from the Regional Arts and Culture Council, the Missouri Review Jeffrey E. Smith Editors’ Prize, and residencies at Caldera Arts Center and the Independent Publishing Resource Center. Perrine co-hosts Portland’s Incite: Queer Writers Read series, teaches writing to youth and adults, and guides nature-based mindfulness experiences.
