Longing, Reflection and Celebration in Prose & Verse
Jessica Lee McMillan is an emerging poet and essayist with an MA in English. When not writing, doing front-line legal work or teaching, she spends time with her little family and buries herself in books and records.
Jessica's poetry investigates the connectedness of nature, language, science, the visual world, and music. Her work considers longing as a kind of architecture that extends to our emotional perception of the environment. Her essays look at culture, music and philosophy as tools to navigate existentialist concerns.
You can find her work in A Poetry of Place: Journeys Across New Westminster, Bewildering Stories, Pocket Lint (A New Journal), Goat's Milk Magazine, ShabdAaweg Review, RCLAS Wordplay at Work, Rat's Ass Review, Tiny Spoon and on Medium. Jessica is working on her first poetry chapbook.
She lives in New Westminster, British Columbia.
