OUT NOW - "20,"
"Like an oracle, Roche commands the words of Verne to float to the surface to cast prophetic warnings about the darkness we face today. But in her deft care, these poems molt the crusted shell of the past and emerge in our times shiny and wondrous. - Armin Tolentino
"20," Jennifer's first chapbook of erasure poems, which were created from Jules Verne’s "20,000 Leagues under the Sea," is now out from Alternating Current Press.

Jennifer's poem "you and me and all the gods" is featured in Tule Review 2020, published by the Sacramento Poetry Center. Two of her text art pieces, "The Synonym Tables: (Poverty, Wealth, Race)" and "The Synonym Tables (Sublime)," are forthcoming in Storm Cellar.
Last year, Jennifer was selected by Chicago's Guild Literary Complex as one of "30 Writers to Watch in 2019 & Beyond."
