Jane Gregory

Jane Gregory’s mystifying second collection, YEAH NO, begins with a “Knock knock,” inviting the reader into a realmwhere “Everything is a pattern / of yesses and no.” Within these pages we find Gregory constructing a multivalent world–ripe with struggle, prophecy, and, by the end, a resemblance of hope. Using her highly-tuned sensibility throughout, Gregory guides us through the anxieties of this journey by inventing new and enigmatic forms filled with sonic experimentation and polyphony. YEAH NO builds upon the singular vision found within her previous collection, MY ENEMIES, and continues her elegant and challenging address to poetry.¬†Jane Gregory is from Tucson and lives in Oakland. YEAH NO (The Song Cave, 2018) is her second book. Her first, MY ENEMIES, was published by The Song Cave in 2013. She is co-founder and co-editor of Nion Editions, a chapbook press.
