👋 I'm J-Ha.
That’s 90s-speak for Jennifer Hasegawa.
I'm a poet, photographer, and performance artist.
My poetry manuscript, La Chica’s Field Guide to Banzai Living, received the San Francisco Foundation’s Joseph Henry Jackson Literary Award in 2014 and will be published by Omnidawn in Spring 2020. 🎉💃🏻🤓
My work appears in The Adroit Journal, Bamboo Ridge, Tule Review, the San Francisco Bay Guardian, Transfer, and a forthcoming issue of Bennington Review.
I was born and raised in Hilo, Hawai‘i; and live in San Francisco.
Currently, I'm thinking a lot about paranormal phenomena, including alien encounters, Sinéad O'Connor, and cryptocurrency valuation models.
