Jennifer S. Holmes is a poet and stage director. Along with directing an annual play series at the Ruth B. Shannon Center for the Performing Arts at Whittier College where she is a professor of theater and communications, Holmes has worked at L.A.'s Odyssey Theater, Casa 0101 in Boyle Heights, the Colombia International Theater Festival in Barranquilla, Colombia, and the American College Theater Festival at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. In a conversation with host Mariano Zaro, she discusses how theater informs her poetry and vice versa. Her work includes Whispers which gives voice to characters from famous plays and Greek mythology; She, about the varieties of social constrictions women confront; and Mouth, a collection of confessional poems.
