My poetry collection, Breakfast for the Birds, is available to pre-order now (book ships April). 

Jude Marr’s chapbook Breakfast for the Birds honors the world that the poet passes through, gifting it with her close attention. Her poems shine with a subtle luminescence that shifts to reveal a cutting, faceted edge once examined in the light. And this is her indomitable gift to the reader: comfort and disquiet served in equal measure as we travel through poems that build with a quiet intensity, offering up journeys of struggle, of opacity, of freedom and a longing that illuminates what it means to be human.

Mary Akers, author of the short story collections Women Up On Blocks and Bones of an Inland Sea


Marr’s stylish, well-traveled poems reward close reading. They lean towards spare, even cool to the touch—but their speakers walk on coals.

Laura Newbern, author of Love and the Eye
