Jaclyn Hymes

Jaclyn Hymes When she is not stressed out about the completion and progress of her Master's poetry thesis, Jackie can be found reading other poets for inspiration and encouragement. Lately she has been reading the lovely poets published via Write Bloody press. Her poems have taken a turn towards Greek mythology in which she explores the dark, twisted relationships between gods and goddesses, gods and mortals, and men and women. Writing from a feminist, lyrical, and oftentimes dark place, Jackie's poetry has been published in The Northridge Review and her poem "Plumage" received honorable mention for the Academy of American Poets Prize through CSUN.
