Chelsea Jackson

Chelsea Jackson is awestruck by creativity and its power to challenge and comfort. They use their poetry to ask hard questions, interrogate inherited social narratives, and explore what it means to be human. Their work is published in Tiny Seed Literary Journal, Passengers Journal, Fatal Flaw Literary Magazine, Touchstone Literary Magazine, and the Platform Review. They were also a finalist in the 2020 Driftwood Press In-House Poetry Contest. Chelsea has an MFA in Poetry from Drew University, and is the Managing Editor of The Maine Review. Originally from Southeastern, Virginia, they now live in Philadelphia with their partner, grouchy cat, and cuddly pit bull. You can find them on Twitter and Instagram @sea_c_j.
