Jenny Daugherty

Bio for 2023

When not enervated by mental illness, placating gaggles of cranky elderly women at the workplace, or tending to a ramshackle (likely semi-haunted) Victorian house full of brilliant adult children and an increasingly diverse menagerie of animals & potted plants, Jen carves out time to overshare the darkest and most intimate details of her life on the page. This community college graduate's greatest hope is that she will someday read a snippet of narrative or rambling poem she’s written and think to herself, "this actually doesn't suck."

Reason for signing up:

I want to connect with Lexington's literary community in a more substantial way, be inspired by the creativity of others, and develop a discipline of daily writing moving forward as I continue to work on my manuscript.
