Praise for Jensen's Poetry

“This collection’s use of narrative and colloquial imagery invites readers on a journey that spans not just landscapes, but complex discussions on races, gender, and class…McRae’s poems present truth(s) that readers both crave and need, while providing a much-needed uncomfortability which shakes us out from under a strong hypnotism.” ~ excerpts from remarks at the 2019 USC Undergraduate Writer’s Conference

“...The language and cadences are sharp and inventive, and the tapestry is evocative—a vivid portrait of a certain girl in a certain place at a certain time." ~ excerpts from remarks at the 2018 USC Undergraduate Writer's Conference
