Jennifer Met lives with her husband and children in a small 800 person town in the North Idaho panhandle.

She is a two-time Pushcart Prize nominee, a Best of the Net nominee, a finalist for Nimrod’s Pablo Neruda Prize for Poetry, and winner of the Jovanovich Award. Recent work is published in Cimarron ReviewGone Lawn, Gulf Stream, Harpur Palate, Juked, Midway Journal, The Museum Americana, Nimrod, Ninth Letter, Sleet Magazine, and Zone 3, among other journals. She currently serves as an Assistant Prose Poetry Editor at Pithead Chapel. She is also the author of the chapbook Gallery Withheld (Glass Poetry Press, 2017).

She holds an undergraduate degree in Molecular Biology, but after working various jobs (including retail associate, AIDS research assistant, medical receptionist, and public librarian), she began writing poetry.  A lover of nature, fry-sauce, and 90’s sci-fi, she often spends her free time collecting Victorian picture buttons.
