Jessica Rigney | Without Map
POET . ARTIST . FILMMAKER
My new chapbook, due out in the fall of 2021, is a collection of poems about desire’s unexplainable swings between grasping and letting go.
Rest. less. waves – silvered. westered.
My work with film is an extension of my poetry, linking sound, words, movement, visual symbolism.
