Jessi Peterson reads her award-winning poems from the Wisconsin People & Ideas Poetry Contest.

Jessi Peterson 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 & 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.
