Jessi Peterson

  • Magazine

Jessi Peterson grew up roaming the fields and woods of southern Illinois and western Wisconsin, where she learned the singular magic that comes from knowing the names of things, be they animal, vegetable or mineral. She lives in a cordwood cabin she built with husband Dan overlooking the Chippewa River in western Wisconsin. When not working as a children’s librarian, she oversees a changing cast of livestock on their farmstead, serves as a poetry reader for literary journal Barstow and Grand, and enjoys foraging for wild foods and poems.  Her work has appeared in Crab Orchard Review, Sky Island Journal, and The Green Light Literary Journal, as well as in Wisconsin People & Ideas.
