Editorial Reviews


"The title of the book (Paper Heart) is appropriate because many of the poems are about how fragile love is, both precious and painful. Some of the poems the author included were very personal, especially the ones about the author's mother. Other poems could speak to almost everyone,with universal messages. I liked the range in the various poems,covering many different emotions (from sadness to great joy), and the dichotomy of themes of darkness and light. There are varying structures to a number of the poems, and I liked the different styles, that they weren't all the same. Many of the poems reminded me of my favorite songs or a line from the lyrics because they had the same feeling, and I enjoyed that aspect of the author's writing."
-Literary Titan

"Poet Jennifer LeBlanc has a frank style in her free verse collection which is easy to read and absorb, making it ideal as a poetry volume of emotional outburst and exploration. LeBlanc gives a deceptively simple format a deeper level of excellence once her words hit you, and the book is beautifully formatted to complement the experience. Overall, Paper Heart will make a lot of sense to anyone who lives with their heart on their sleeve, and those in emotional distress are sure to find comfort and solidarity in Jennifer LeBlanc's work."
-K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite
"This poetry really hits you hard. These words are filled with pain, love, and regret, a collection of poems full of emotion and vulnerability. It speaks to those who are going through or have gone through the same grief of loving those who only hurt you. As an artist of words, I really appreciate Author LeBlanc's willingness to reveal the deepest sorrows of her soul."
-April M. Woodard (Author of The Aeon Chronicles)

"LeBlanc's Paper Heart dives deep into darkness, while still clutching the light.This autobiographic work deals with love and heartbreak, as well as abuse, sexual assault, and the complicated emotions that accompany the loss of an abusive parent. Throughout the text LeBlanc remains highly experimental in structure, spanning from regular rhyme schemes to free verse to acrostics to prose poems and beyond, while still maintaining accessible language that appeals to a broad audience."-Matt Miller (Author of Brave and Stupid)

From the Author

Dear readers,thank you for taking the time to read my first collection of poetry, Paper Heart. I have been writing poems since I was ten years old and have always loved the idea of creating something beautiful with words. Whether I was reading it or writing it, I have always been drawn to lyrical writing and prose. Especially when I come across a particular poem or story that moves me heart and soul. It's not just that the author is putting words together that rhyme, or telling a story, it's the whispers of their deepest desires and darkest fears, murmurings of longing and hope. It is a wondrous spark of creativity woven magnificently into words on a page.
I have always loved hard and passionately and felt things on a "too-deep" level compared to most people. This collection is my way of coping with the world and my experiences.A lot of my writing stems from dark places and things that people only think about but rarely speak of out loud. Through all these trying times, I have also experienced so much love, generosity, and's unbelievable.
This collection of poetry is pure emotion and is my interpretation of things I know,learned, or experienced. This collection took me years to complete. It pulls from the darkest and brightest parts of me. Some of these poems are fifteen years old and were previously incomplete fragments, some of them were just written weeks ago. I have poured my heart into these poems, many of them have been written and rewritten ten and twenty times. I have dreamed of publishing poetry since I first started reading it and am in awe that this is finally out in the world. Thank you for taking the time to read it. You all make this journey worth it.
