Ambrose Thompson

ambrose

Ambrose Thompson was born on Vancouver Island in Canada, but spent the majority of his youth in the U.S.A. The stark variance between his first years and later ones gave him an early education in how differences of experience affect perspective and expectations. Books more than anything became a refuge for him to see farther than daily life allowed and drew him to the profession of librarianship. He is now an academic librarian trying to foster a love of reading and learning for people of all ages and past life choices. Read his poem: Wither.

About Ijagun Poetry Journal

Ijagun Poetry Journal is a quarterly journal that provides a platform from which we can tell our own stories in the authenticity of their multiplicity through the poetic medium. We don’t want to hear these stories from our master “griots” alone; we want to hear from those mastering their art, too. Hence, we aim at publishing new and emerging poets. We also welcome the works of established poets in order to encourage the poetic genius of those mastering poetic art. We prize original works that conform to, break or reinvent conventions. Again, we accept reviews and critical essays on poetry. We also accept powerful art works and photographs that make us appreciate the "poetry" in everything.
