Jennifer Compton performing ‘in the museum of the wars’, which received an Honourable Mention at The 2018 Melbourne Spoken Word Prize.

Jennifer Compton lives in Melbourne and is a poet and playwright who also writes prose. When it comes to the poetry side of things she likes to have it every which way possible. She very much likes winning the Newcastle Poetry Prize and being given the big cheque. And she also very much likes the hurly burly of the open mic.
