Jennifer Hetrick - Farm Femme

Jennifer Hetrick considers herself a language thrower of sorts. Having graduated from Clarion University of Pennsylvania with a B.A. degree in philosophy and a minor in English writing, she contributes to several local publications and she  is currently managing a three-year poetry project called the labors of our fingertips: poems from manufacturing history in berks county, and the first and second volumes were published in September 2015 and 2016. She features her poetry-teaching on a blog called Poetry with Jennifer Hetrick. Her other blog, the garden harlot, easily explains her penchant for hiking and photographing scenes of plants from unexpected viewpoints. A lot of her freelance writing involves focusing on farms, local food, kindness, compassion, exploring the mind, and green-speak.
