Jenna Butler [see her 12 or 20 questions here] was born in Norwich, England in 1980, but has spent most of her life on the prairies of western Canada. The landscapes of the prairies and mountains – their severity and incredible richness – feature prominently in her poetry and fiction.

Butler’s work has appeared in numerous literary magazines, journals and anthologies in Canada and abroad. Her poetry has garnered, among others, the James Patrick Folinsbee Prize, and has been produced by the CBC. She is the editor of more than twenty collections of poetry in Canada and Europe, and is the founding editor of Rubicon Press.

She currently makes her home in Edmonton, Alberta, where she lives with her husband, and works as a teacher, editor, and book reviewer.
