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 previously taught at National University (California) and was on the core faculty of the Centrum Young Artists Project in Port Townsend, Washington.[1]

Gailey has published four books of poetry: The Robot Scientist's Daughter (Mayapple Press, 2015), Unexplained Fevers (New Binary Press, 2013), She Returns to the Floating World (Kitsune Books, 2011), and Becoming the Villainess (Steel Toe Books, 2006). Her 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. Her most recent book, The Robot Scientist's Daughter, deals more with ecological issues, with a specific focus on the potential dangers of the nuclear industry, set against the backdrop of growing up in Oak Ridge, Tennessee.
