Reviews

Even The Saints Audition lives in the walls of God's house. This work is a sinner's diary, made of the secrets between pews, the notes beneath the hymns and the guilt writhing within desire. Raych Jackson puts you at god's table, on the devil's plate.

Toaster, Artist
Jackson's debut is a reimagining of a miseducation. She rearranges the scripture of God until it is a machine that works for her. Her bible blesses the ones who roam.

Kara Jackson, Author of BLOODSTONE / National Youth Poet Laureate
Raych creates space for all of our varied messinesses and brokennesses, interrogating society's notion of saint and sinner throughout her poems. This is an important voice and a brave book, one that keeps me asking for more.

Fatimah Asghar, author of IF THEY COME FOR US / co-creator of BROWN GIRLS
