With Paper for Feet  is themed and narrative, drawing together Jennifer A. McGowan’s poetry of myth and folktale, and the frailties – human and otherwise – behind them. With Paper for feet explores, mostly from a female perspective, the guts it takes to live or – often – die, un-heroically. her characters laugh, argue, complain, suffer, curse,

Jennifer explores many voices including the women of Troy & many of Shakespeare’s characters, as well as poems based in other cultures including France, Africa & China.
