FB Profile Jennifer 2-13 (2)


Jennifer J. Pruiett-Selby is a woman of contradictions. She joined the military to find peace. Afterwards, she earned a Master’s degree in English from Iowa State University, a place whose focus and funding is science and technology–not liberal arts. She lives a life of anything but intrigue with her husband, poet Jason Selby, and five children in rural Iowa, where her column {just a word} appears in the local newspaper. Her work has been published or is forthcoming in PRAIRIE SCHOONER, CRAB CREEK REVIEW, CALYX, RED RIVER REVIEW, RUST + MOTH, and EMBER, among others. She was the featured author for March 2014 in LUNCH TICKET MAGAZINE’S monthly issue of “Amuse-Bouche.” She is EASY STREET MAGAZINE’S newest voice, as her column, “Awkward in the Midwest,” launched August 2015. Her search for peace continues in the form of meditation through writing.
