"The Humane Society" is the debut pamphlet from Jodie Hollander, recent recipient of a Wilfred Owen Association bursary.
"Romantic, surreal and tender, it paints a family portrait that is a mixture of memoir, ghost story and artistic obsession, as well as being an elegy for an older, more mannered, world".
Jodie is originally from Wisconsin and now lives and works in Washington DC. An alumni of the Creative Writing MA at Bath Spa University, her poetry has appeared in a number of poetry magazines and journals both in the UK and America. She has also received a Fullbright Scholarship and is due to receive a Hawthornden Fellowship in 2013. She was awarded the Wilfred Owen Association bursary to study at Ty Newydd in 2012.
