In what ways are you willing to fail? Is vulnerability necessary for success? Ponder these questions with Austin, TX native poet and musician Christina M. Jackson. Also poetry! Listen to us read pieces from Pablo Neruda, W.H. Auden, and our sweet selves.
In a desire to resolve moments from the past with hope for the future, Christina M. Jackson’s creative style continually reflects both the bright and dark sides of life. Sometimes her writing reflects childlike descriptions of landscapes and troubled times whereas other times there are adult themes and urban neurosis. Being a native of Austin, Texas did help her to connect with numerous communities for musicians and writers, eventually allowing her to be published locally on several occasions. You can find her work in CC&D Magazine, the Waco, Texas Wordfest 2015 Anthology, and a video that was created by Texas Nafas. She's claimed that "lately [she's] had more of a taste for improvisation over preparation" which came in handy when she hosted two events for Austin International Poetry Festival this year. You can locate her latest works on her Facebook Page: Iron & Zen- Christina M. Jackson Poetry.
