Poetry | Playwriting | Dramaturgy | Performance | Production

I’m Jenni, a freelance writer, performer, and production manager originally from Finland, currently living in Galway, Ireland. I write disturbing and beautiful poetic works that misbehave and wander around with sailors and pirates. I believe in kindness and treating people with care and if ever given the chance, I shall become a mermaid and live in the ocean. MA in Playwriting & Dramaturgy from National University of Galway, Ireland. Alpine Fellowship Shortlist 2020.
