Seth Jani grew up in the western mountains of Maine, in a town seemingly outside the reaches of time. They spent their formative years exploring the forests and lakes, befriending wild animals, and learning the truth of things from the rocks and trees.
Since then they have lived all over the country, building houses in New Orleans, constructing trails in Vermont, and planting native plants in the Mojave Desert and the mountains of the Pacific Northwest.
They currently reside in Seattle, Washington, where they are the editor and publisher of Seven CirclePress (www.sevencirclepress.com), an independent poetry micropress.
Their work has appeared in The American Poetry Journal, Chiron Review, The Comstock Review, The Hamilton Stone Review, Common Ground Review, Ghost City Review, Gingerbread House, Pretty Owl Poetry, Rust+Moth and Stirring: A Literary Collection, among others.
Their most recent full-length collection, Field Music, was published by FutureCycle Press in 2023.
