Jami Padgett (she/her) is currently an MFA student in Poetry at the University of Arkansas, hailing from the mountains of North Georgia. She works as an instructor of record for the university as she pursues her degree.

 

Poetry editor for the Arkansas International, Jami finds her own work most interested in memory, mental illness, and myth, peppered here and there with pop culture. When she’s not writing, she’s trying her hand at learning a new language or re-learning art—again. She holds a bachelor’s in Comparative Religious Studies from Young Harris College.
