| words that get in your teeth

behind the curtain

Gnashing Teeth Publishing was conceived in the middle of the night and promptly overtook every waking hour since. often referred to as simply GTP, we love the community of Gnashers who have embraced our vision. we are unapologetically feminist and are committed to our Statement of Inclusion. we do not shy away from subjects or language, but embrace honesty, high caliber writing, non-traditional works, and the community of authors and poets. beyond traditional print books, we have online features and fun projects. we are always looking at opportunities for poets, writers, and artists to engage with us and our growing community.

we love getting to know you. get to know us.

Jennifer Taylor

Jennifer Taylor is a daughter of Texas, having recently returned home after adventures elsewhere. She volunteers with creative writing and English students, and especially enjoys working with those for whom English is not their first language. She loves all things artsy, and describes herself, artistically speaking, as the proverbial jack of all trades, master of none, having been, at various times, a writer, poet, painter, dancer, singer, choir director, theater producer, choreographer and, obviously, editor.
