Reviews

Raych creates space for all of our varied messinesses and brokennesses, interrogating society's notion of saint and sinner throughout her poems. This is an important voice and a brave book, one that keeps me asking for more. Fatimah Asghar, author of IF THEY COME FOR US / co-creator of BROWN GIRLS
Jackson's debut is a reimagining of a miseducation. She rearranges the scripture of God until it is a machine that works for her. Her bible blesses the ones who roam. Kara Jackson, Author of BLOODSTONE / National Youth Poet Laureate
Even The Saints Audition lives in the walls of God's house. This work is a sinner's diary, made of the secrets between pews, the notes beneath the hymns and the guilt writhing within desire. Raych Jackson puts you at god's table, on the devil's plate. Toaster, Artist
