Poetry. Winner of the Tupelo Press First Book Award, Jennifer Militello's poems are lyrical, deeply thoughtful, and laced with associative leaps so surprising that a reader will be exhilarated by the imagination at work (and play) in each poem. The poems grapple with the everyday dramas of family and of love and do so with an avidity of intelligence as bracing as lines from Lorca or Rimbaud.
Jennifer Militello is the author of THE PACT (Tupelo Press, 2021) and Knock Wood, winner of the Dzanc Nonfiction Prize (Dzanc Books, 2019), as well as four previous collections of poetry: A CAMOUFLAGE OF SPECIMENS AND GARMENTS (Tupelo Press, 2016), called "positively bewitching" by Publishers Weekly; BODY THESAURUS (Tupelo Press, 2013), named one of the top books of 2013 by Best American Poetry; FLINCH THE SONG (Tupelo Press, 2009), winner of the Tupelo Press First Book Award; and the chapbook Anchor Chain, Open Sail. Her work has appeared widely in such journals as American Poetry Review, The Nation, The New Republic, The Paris Review, POETRY, and Tin House, and been anthologized in Best American Poetry, Best New Poets, and Poem-a-Day: 365 Poems for Every Occasion. Militello teaches in the MFA program at New England College.
