something to do with a red ball
and bouncing
in order
something about not missing
and rotating

Poet and publisher Jill Stengel founded a+bend press in 1999 as the print component of her poetry reading and publication series held in San Francisco’s historically-rich North Beach, producing a chapbook for each reader. Later she added a journal, mem, featuring writing by poet-mothers raising young children.

Dear Jack, Jill’s first full-length collection, will be available this Spring from Black Radish Books. Nearly a dozen of her chapbooks have been published, some of which can be viewed online at and other sites. Her writing has also appeared in print and online journals and anthologies, including Boog CityKindergarde, OtolithsTry, and Touched by Adoption. She has taught poetry and book arts, participates in poetry collectives, and is active in the Poet-Moms listserv community.

Jill currently lives in Davis, CA with her family of one husband, three children, and an oft-changing number of non-human animals.
