Author Biography

Jennifer Markell, N/A

My first poetry collection, Samsara, (Turning Point, 2014) was named a “Must-Read Book” by the Massachusetts Book Awards in 2015 and was a Finalist in the Next Generation Indie Book Awards in the U.S.

I received my Master's in Creative Writing and my Master’s in Social Work from Boston University in the U.S.  In my practice as a psychotherapist, I have a special interest in therapeutic uses of writing.

I’m the recipient of the Barbara Bradley and Firman Houghton awards from the New England Poetry Club in the U.S. My poetry is included in numerous journals, including Carapace (South Africa), Consequence, The Human Journal (Istanbul), Rhino, Tinderbox, The Compassion Anthology, and The Women's Review of Books.
