Marvyne Jenoff


Born in Winnipeg, Marvyne Jenoff began publishing poetry in national literary journals as a student at the University of Manitoba.

She has served on boards and committees, including the TWUC National Council for one year. She started Twoffish Press in 2006. Over the last decade she has participated in group and solo art shows with abstract photography and watermedia pieces, some based on original text.
