Jennifer Robin has lived in Portland, Oregon for the past twenty years. She writes grotesque prose. She is a mash-up artist in terms of tone, content, and media. She resists residing in one genre—on the page and in the flesh. Her body of work includes humorous vignettes, post-post-modern theory, gonzo journalism, surrealist flash fiction, travel writing, and erotic horror.
She has been published in PLAZM Media, Whole Beast Rag, Fractalized, Unshod Quills, Dark Bizarra Magazine, Gobshite Quarterly, HorrorSleazeTrash, and CLASH Media. Her novel Bouzi, was published by Creative Arts in 2000. In spring 2016, Robin’s zine, Even Snowflakes Heal and You Can Download Skin was featured in the LadyBox series. Feral House released Death Confetti: Pickers, Punks, and Transit Ghosts in Portland Oregon in June 2016.
Robin has worked with avant-garde musicians for twenty years. She booked a live weekly variety show, Night of the Living Tongue, on Portland’s KBOO 90.7 FM, from 1999-2008. She has read and recorded with Doug Theriault, Solenoid, A nat Hema, The Dead Air Fresheners, The Groop, Eric Prado, Airon Ghostradio, and Spirit Duplicator. She appeared with Tres Gone on their Voodoo Doughnuts 2015 release. She went on two tours between 2000-2001 for her published novel, Bouzi. She’s made multiple appearances at the Olympia Experimental Music Festival, Nofest, and Bumbershoot. She recently had the honor of opening for Lisa Carver’s Suckdog Reunion Tour.
