Jennifer Coffison

Jennifer Coffison was born in Queensland, Australia in the 1950s. She began writing poetry as a young girl and soon realised that her love of the humble word inspired her to travel the long journey into publishing her work. Her early years were full of writing, marriage, raising children and working, in common with many of us in this full and amazing life. Poetry is her forte, with each book capturing her truth spoken in ink.

Jennifer’s previously published works include two poetry collections, No Indication of Splinters and As if I Were Here, both published by Jabiru Publishing. On Elephants and Cotton Wool is Jennifer’s third book of poetry, once again proving her love of the humble word.
