FOG is the debut chapbook by Dakotah Jennifer, a remarkable young poet who cites influences ranging from Lucie Brock-Broido to Sam Sax, while coming through loud and clear in her own voice, in a series of poems tinged with the heart’s “violent living and scarlet song.”
Dakotah Jennifer is an eighteen-year-old black writer currently attending Washington University in St. Louis. She started writing at eight and has loved it ever since. While working on self-publishing her poetry and an essay collection, she has been published in the Grief Diaries, interned for the JMWW literary magazine, and was on the Long List in the Fish Publishing Flash Fiction contest. Jennifer writes about race, class, and gender, stretching her emotions into tangible things. She strives to write things that grow. Fog is her first chapbook.
