After her Edenic experience at the University of Mississippi, Jennifer Malesich, relived Manifest Density by returning west to her home state of Montana with her poetry MFA in tow. In Faulkner’s hometown, Jennifer thrived on the generous John and Renee Grisham Fellowship, which lent her creative time and freedom to explore the vast ranges of her poetic vision. Since being back in Montana and several existential crises later, she is getting back to her true loves: poetry, wine, books and music. She has published poems and reviews in Rattle, Fourteen Hills, the Iron Horse Literary Review and Third Coast. She lives in Missoula where she hikes, bikes and slings wine.
