Product description

About the Author

Jessica Bates is a writer, a Nashville native, and a reading enthusiast. Her grandfather sold books to schools and book fairs, so she grew up around lots of books. You can hear Jessica Bates and Barbara Demske, founder of The First Latch breastfeeding community, talk boobs, babies, VBACs, and beyond on episode 2 of The First Latch podcast. You can also hear Jessica read the poem Weaning there, the poem that Barbara connected with while feeding her (probably) last nursling. Jessica released her first book Birth & What Came After on May 9, 2017. Birth & What Came After discusses the joys and sorrows of motherhood with accessible poetry and short prose. Her work has been compared to Sharon Olds, Martha Silano, and Gabriela Mistral. Oh, and this woman loves clubs. She runs a book club at Atmalogy, where she reads great books (and some weird ones, too), and enjoys discussing them over coffee, wine, or tea. Jessica also frequents a monthly writing club & a monthly creative club that is working through The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron. You can find Jessica on Instagram, where she loves sharing her current reads & other randomness. She also blogs haphazardly. To stay in the know about Jessica's future writing projects, sign up for her newsletter on her website @ jessicabateswriter.com. Jessica likes Instagram; find her @_jessicabates. Jessica writes poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction.
