Trish Lindsey Jaggers, author of De-Composition: Rigor Mortis (Local Gems Poetry Press, 2019) & Holonym: a collection of poems (Finishing Line Press, 2016) is an award-winning Kentucky poet. She earned her MFA in Creative Writing from Spalding University. She makes her home on a small farm in Chalybeate, Kentucky and is an assistant professor of English at Western Kentucky University where she teaches composition, literature, and creative writing and mentors a flock of young (and older) writers.
Trish wants things simple—no impossible-to-connect inferences meant for a limited audience. Her ”Crazy-Eights” goal as a poet is to, ”Create simply: Write so an eight-year-old can read it, an eighteen-year-old can understand it, and an eighty-year-old will have lived it.”
