Julie "Jules" Jacob is the author of "The Glass Sponge," a semi-finalist in the New Women's Voices Chapbook Competition, and a 2015 participant in the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts Poetry Workshop in France.
Dr. Harrison Solow, Pushcart Prize winning writer, author and professor, writes of The Glass Sponge-"In this strong and vulnerable collection of poetry, the poet spins out a thoughtful imagery of innocence and culpability, for (and of) 'the users and the abused'. Jules Jacob inhabits a dichotomous world, and with delicate magnetism, draws us into it, in each poem."
Jules' poetry, fiction and non-fiction have appeared in numerous publications including The Pittsburgh Poetry Review, Rust + Moth, Paper Nautilus, Still: The Journal, The Binnacle, Huff Post Women/AOL's MyDaily, Frogpond, Camroc Press Review, Grey Sparrow Journal, the Writer's Gazette and elsewhere.
Jules attended the University of New Hampshire, The Horticultural Therapy Institute and Colorado State University. She advocates for abused and neglected children for the Thirty-first Judicial Circuit of Missouri and is an Emeritus Master Gardener for the University of Missouri Extension.
