Jennifer Hudgens is an important voice on the Oklahoma poetry scene, with her vivid, evocative, and tightly crafted work. Jennifer grabs you with the first line of this poem: “We the tribe of the walking, talking, breathing autopsy”, and then hits you with sharp line after sharp line, all throughout the poem. Lines like “we are comatose zombie brides, with mistakes carved willingly into our architecture” could only be crafted by Jennifer Hudgens.
Featured Poem: Donated to Science
Jennifer E. Hudgens, originally from Oklahoma City, previously published in Kill Poet, Decomp, Pedestal, Requiem, Divine Carcass, Artistica, Words Dance Press, Misfit Magazine, Dragon Poetry Review, This Land Press, Literary Orphans, Swimming With Elephants, Penhall Publishing, Culture Vultures, & Novel Masters, and The Rain, Party, Disaster Society, Voicemail poems, Literati Press, Drunk in a Midnight Choir and forthcoming in the winter 2015 issues of Clockwise Cat and Dragon Poetry Review. Jennifer is the co-editor of Wicked Banshee Press. Jennifer has also been featured on Indiefeed Performance Poetry. She doesn't really like talking about herself in third person, it's a little creepy. Jennifer loves unicorns, watching ants carry bread crumbs, and full-bellied laughs. She is terrified of horses, clowns, and animatronic toys. Jen truly hopes you like her poems.
Her first full-length collection of poems entitled “Girls Who Fell in Love With War” will be released in December 2015 by Swimming With Elephants Press.
