I write

I write to breathe, to try and stop time from tripping on down the trail and around the bend without me, to give the descriptions and wandering wonderings in my head a place to curl up for a while and just be.

Jamie Lynn Heller uses poetry as her caffeine (and she needs a lot to keep up with her life of teaching, parenting, wife-ing, daughtering, aunting, neighboring, writing, and other -ings ). Her book Buried in the Suburbs was published in 2018 (Woodley Press) and received the 2019 Notable KS Book Award. Her chapbook Domesticated was published in 2015 (Finishing Line Press). She has work accepted or published at Prairie Schooner, Tule Review, Noctua Review, Gargoyle, Earth’s Daughters, Whistling Shade, The Main Street Rag, Iodine Poetry Journal, Flint Hills Review, I-70 review, Blueline, and others.
