In Want of Jasmine began as an online collaborative poetry project between Jess June and Ridire Quinn. It has evolved into something more.

Welcome to In Want of Jasmine: Journal for the Written Wor(l)d

We are lovers of the written, the visual, the visceral. We search out work that originates at the base of the spine and would bring about madness unless it found its way onto the blank page, the film, the canvas.

We strive to contribute to the community of poets, beginning in our own back yard of southern Wisconsin. Here, you can leave your day job at the door, free to breathe in the necessary space of living. Wherever you are: read, view, submit, contribute to the conversation.
