Writing serves primarily as an organizational tool – a means by which I bring loose structure to my mind, and thereby a resource for truthful articulation. It’s my liaison / middle man between thought and voice – an invitation to yes at times refine, but largely to explore. And then there are those rare moments when the act is pure enthusiasm, usually ushered by the out of doors, with no intention to share. Only to praise.

Hi everyone! I'm Jessica Armstrong from Hermitage, Tennessee. I love to write, read, draw, and drink coffee (lots of coffee). I am extremely excited to participate in the Nashville Poets Quarterly debut edition, and cannot wait to read everyone's work. To have a place to both share and read written words is an absolute joy.
