Jacob Oet‘s writing and images appear in Cream City Review, Illuminations, Yemassee, Yalobusha Review, and Radioactive Moat, among others. His awards include the 2011 Younkin-Rivera Poetry Prize and the 2011 Ohioana Robert Fox Award. Jacob is the author of two poetry chapbooks: Metamorphosis (Kattywompus Press) and Peeling the Apple (NightBallet Press). A student by choice, Jacob is never sure which language he speaks. You may spot him in a park, forest, or beach, with planted feet, arms stretched up and shaking in a breeze. But don’t let him see you; he likes to sing to strangers. He takes photos of snow, and hates winter.
Recorded December 2010 in Lakewood, OH
