Literary North interviews Didi Jackson

Didi Jackson is a terrific poet. She writes accessible poems that are packed with startling imagery, art, precise language, and delicate emotions. She manages to make the shocking and heart-breaking very real and yet very tender at once. Though her new book, Moon Jar (Red Hen Press, 2020), opens with the incomprehensible grief and practical horrors of her husband’s suicide, the journey through this beautiful book takes us into hope and a future where love and healing are possible.
