Excerpts from AS IS THE SKY - poems in memorium
This poetry collection is dedicated and in honor of my grandmother, Jean Martin Allen. She fell asleep in death on June 8th, 2020 at 96 years old. I began reading her journals as she chronicled the seemingly mundane day to day life, but I found deep insight into her character through those simple pages of her heart. It was an amazing project to work on because I challenged myself to write 40 different styles of poetry all focusing on my grandmother as the central theme. I have to say that I am exceedingly proud of this work and what I was able to accomplish in her memory. ~AI /jv NEW PROJECTS!! Together with this poetry anthology, I am launching a greeting card line, Narrow Gate Greetings, with its own branded merch: t-shirts, mugs, caps, sweatshirt, tote bags and more. This line is woman-focused on the themes of encouragement, self-care, mental-wellness, friendship and love. ⚘️⚘️⚘️ #supportindieauthors #spokenword #poetry #poems #genres #cinquain #haiku #oprah #writelikemaya #launchdate #launchparty #women #womenempowerment #greetings #greetingcards #novelty #gifts #merch #company #minutepoem #rondeau #diatelle #limerick #amazonbooks #author #poet Please keep your eye out for the launching date by following Jess Vaughn Writes on IG, Twitter and/or Facebook.

More, new poetic works presented by Jess Vaughn Writes from study notes for her new collection, As Is The Sky. A compilation of 40 poetic styles set in a black historical theme, in honor of her grandmother, Jean Martin Allen (1924 - 2018) "Excited to share these tester poems and anxious to present the book.
