About Jazz

 

Jazz_Portrait2017

Jazz Jaeschke found poetry at mid-life, retired, and got a whole lot happier.

Jazz facilitates an Internet poetry circle for Story Circle Network (since 2003) and frequents Austin area poetry festivals.  Her work has been published in festival anthologies and Story Circle publications.

Photography, labyrinths, SoulCollage(R), nature, and travel arouse her muse.  Jazz lives in Austin, Texas, with a calico cat, an exuberant yellow Labrador, and her just-right man.   She is always writing!

In 2002, Jazz published Significance, a memoir (mostly poems) spanning various aspects of her life through growing up and 33 career years with a high-tech company.  A lot of living has happened since, and a sequel is incubating.  SignifCover-sml

    1. Ali, the internet circles is part of Story Circle Network (see http://www.storycircle.org) – members can choose to be in a circle which involves a monthly prompt and everyone writing to that in their own style. Most of the circles are a combination of prose/poetry, but the one I facilitate is poetry only. There are five to ten of us active at any given time, and the poems roll in over the course of a month, followed by a trickle of responses to each. We don’t critique each other – it’s a sharing and encouraging circle.
