Done Dating DJs


Done Dating DJs by Jennifer Minniti-Shippey

Southword Editions, 24 pages
ISBN: 978-1-905002-32-0


Done Dating DJs is the 2009 winner of the Fool for Poetry Chapbook Competition published by Southword Editions. Jennifer Minniti-Shippey’s Done Dating DJs contains poems with precursors as varied as William Carlos Williams and Rita Ann Higgins. A wry sophisticated humour is invested in these crisp confident poems by a young poet who has found her voice. If Sex and the City were aimed at a higher brow level and written in verse, this could be it.
