Jayne Guertin is a human being, limited in time and space, struggling to free herself from all delusions. She writes about art, nature, domesticity, deceits and conflicts, strange and mysterious moments, and terrible weaknesses.


Jayne holds an MFA in creative writing and literature from the Bennington Writing Seminars, Bennington College. Her work has appeared, among other places, in EcoRI, Literary Mama, Brain Teen 2016 Issue (Brain Child Magazine), Lamplighter Magazine (a New Jersey alternative music and art publication), the Los Angeles Review of Books,  PANK Magazine,  Rhode Island MonthlySmokeLong Quarterly,  The Tishman Review,  Yankee Magazine, and the cover of Seeking It’s Own Level, an anthology of writings about water—including writings by Margaret Atwood, Amy Hempel, Bret Anthony Johnston, Jamie Quatro, Lynne Sharon Schwartz and more. Her nonfiction has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize, and for a Sundress Publication’s Best of the Net Anthology.

Jayne’s award-winning photography has been exhibited in Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Minnesota. A sampling of her visual work can be viewed under this site’s  Photography page, as well as on Instagram and HERE.

Her previous blog, SUBURBAN SOLILOQUY, is a moody mixed-genre blog of the mundane (amidst lots of music and monkey business—and a tad too much alliteration).
