Jeannine Hall Gailey (born New Haven, Connecticut) is an American poet. She earned her bachelor's degree from the University of Cincinnati, master's degree from the University of Cincinnati, and MFA from Pacific University.[1]

In 2012, Gailey was appointed to the position of Poet Laureate of Redmond, Washington.[2] She was also selected as a member of the 2013 Jack Straw Writers Program.[3]

She has written three books of poetry: Unexplained Fevers (New Binary Press, 2013), Becoming the Villainess (Steel Toe Books, 2006), and She Returns to the Floating World (Kitsune Books, 2011). She teaches a graduate seminar course at National University (California) and was on the core faculty of the Centrum Young Artists Project in Port Townsend, Washington.[1]

Gailey's work addresses feminist issues of power in mythology and comic book cultures, turning fairy tale stepmothers into empathetic characters, and holding up a mirror to contemporary American culture's images of powerful women. Gailey's second full-length book of poetry, She Returns to the Floating World, deals with feminine transformations in the personae of characters from Japanese folk tales, anime, and manga.
