Jennifer MacKenzie

Jennifer MacKenzie started reading Marx for the first time this April in Cairo and then Doha, where she became convinced that Qatar is the ideal place from which to consider crystallizations of capital and value in the early 21st century. Some of her recent poems have appeared or are forthcoming in Drunken Boat, Forklift, Ohio, Lungfull, and Typo. A chapbook, "Distant City", is forthcoming this July, and a full book of poems (title yet-to-be-determined) will be published as part of Fence Books' Modern Poets series next year. She lives for the time being in Istanbul, Turkey.
