I write essays, stories, vignettes, and poems about everything under, above, and around the sun. I maintain a journal on this site where I occasionally post long form essays, and I have another site that houses my micro essays. I also (semi-frequently) post micro essays on Instagram (@jessicalynnehenkle). Sometimes, my work finds its way into other publications. You can follow those pieces into the wild by clicking the links below.
