I'M Jacqueline

JACQUELINE ALLEN TRIMBLE lives and writes in Montgomery, Alabama, where she is  a professor of English and chairs the Department of Languages and Literatures at Alabama State University.  Her work has appeared in various online and print publications including  Poetry Magazine, Poet Lore, The Offing, The Louisville Review,  and Blue Lake Review.  American Happiness (2016), her first collection, published by New South Books, won the Balcones Poetry Prize.  How to Survive the Apocalypse, her new collection, is available August 2022.

Her research interests include 20th century black women writers, feminist theory, and representations of race and gender in popular culture.  She is also a poet.  Her work has appeared in The Offing, Blue Lake Review, The Louisville Review and The Griot. American Happiness, her first collection is published by New South Books.  The ironically titled book examines America’s refusal to grapple with hard truths, preferring instead the pretense that everyone and everything is just fine.   Recently awarded a Key West Literary Seminar scholarship, she is currently a Cave Canem fellow and the recipient of a 2017 literary arts fellowship from the Alabama State Council on the Arts. American Happiness won the 2016 Balcones Poetry Prize and was named best book of 2016 by the new Seven Sisters Book Awards.
