  1. I’d never thought about an album and aa poetry collection as differentiated from individual pieces. Hey, everything’s clear after someone else has expressed it, right?

    Are you going to tell us something about the wrestling that Jacob does in your verse novel?

  2. Thank you, Kelly, so much for selecting Alexandria for the CNY poetry award. It means so much to me! All the best, jasmine

  3. Hi Kelly!

    I read your nonfiction piece of writing published by ‘Change Seven” magazine today. It’s the first piece of nonfiction I’ve read in a long time that has me hanging on the author’s every word… I’m grateful that you decided to share it with the world. You have inspired me!

    Please keep on going with your writing!
