Jennifer Hosein’s poetry is relevant, emotional, evocative, and beautiful. Jennifer’s poetry shows us what it’s like to be a person of colour in Canada without allowing identity to overshadow poetic craft.

Every day during #GuernicaVirtualLaunch we’ll be introducing a new author and book from our Fall 2020 list. Content can be viewed across all our social media — Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
