KRISTINA JENSEN
‘Growing Old’ in Journey to Crone

Kristina is a ‘poet afloat’, freelance writer and musician living a simple life on a boat in the Marlborough Sounds of New Zealand with her artist husband and home-schooled son. She has always enjoyed spending more time in nature than with people and just rows off in the dinghy when things get too intense. Wild food foraging, sailing and watching the sun rise are among her favourite past-times and she looks forward with interest to the ‘drying up’ of oil and subsequent economic and social mayhem that will follow. Her poetry has been published in Bravado, Valley Micropress, Eclecticism, REM, Shotglass, One Smile magazine, Granny Smith, A Fine Line and by Forward Poetry.
