The Dazzling Oppression of the Real #11

Jude Dillon Presents: Jessamyn Cuneo of San Francisco, California.

Bio: Jessamyn Cuneo is under your bed. No, wait, she’s in the closet. Or, she’s peeking in through your bedroom window. She likes to watch you read poetry in your pajamas.

Originally sprung from Boston soil, Jessamyn got her BFA at Emerson College. Soon after graduation she transplanted to Los Angeles to work for several magazines and enjoy the roller-coaster-by-the-beach life. When the So Cal lifestyle threatened to placate her into oblivion, she migrated to San Francisco, where she now spends her days writing fiction & poetry while completing an MFA in Creative Writing from California College of the Arts. Her poetry has previously found homes in Haggard and Halloo, Synergy and Mad Swirl.
