Bio: Regine Jackson is a 25-year-old writer, born and raised in Springfield, Massachusetts. Being an avid reader since she was a child, Jackson always wished to bring all the elements of her imagination to life, specifically stories where the main characters looked like her and the majority of the people around her. While not having any of her works professionally published (so far), Jackson is currently working on two YA horror novels, as well as taking the tentative steps to create a dark fantasy/horror trilogy series.
While Jackson mainly writes within the science-fiction, horror, and fantasy genres, she has also taken on writing prose and poetry revolving around her life living in an inner city. Thankful for the opportunities being the 2022 Straw Dog Writers’ Guild recipient has presented to her, she hopes to not only hone her own craft but to bring more creative work to her city and encourage more BIPOC women to write their truths.”
