About the Author

Deb Jannerson is the author of the acclaimed poetry collection, Rabbit Rabbit (Finishing Line Press, 2016), available wherever books are sold. Her second book of poems, Thanks for Nothing, explores the biases of personal experience, the ways in which pop culture infuses one's personal narrative, and the far-reaching repercussions of political upheaval. Her debut YA novel is forthcoming from NineStar Press. Jannerson won the 2017 So to Speak Nonfiction Award for her short memoir about queer intimacy and PTSD, and the 2018 Flexible Persona Editors' Prize for a piece of flash fiction about gruesome work injuries. More than one hundred of her stories and articles have been featured in anthologies and magazines. Deb is currently searching for a home for her middle grade fantasy novel. She lives in New Orleans with her wife and pets. Learn more at


"Deb Jannerson's Thanks for Nothing is a jewel-toned, kaleidoscopic rendering of living among contemporary America's unkindnesses. Out of pain, Jannerson creates a strange and elemental tableau. Structural inequities, phony concern, and the speaker herself morph into sinister dioramas pasted together from tainted childhood memories and the always-distressing news. The collection's images traverse seamlessly among nature, pop-culture, mythos, and political critique. Jannerson's alliterative and idiosyncratic rendering of firsts--persons, touches, tries--fun-houses the collection's physics, welcoming readers in the experience of emerging, dizzy but comfortable, from a legacy of hurt."
