From Rhizomatic Ideas review of Spyre, Summer 2015:
- "Through this constant shift between the concrete and the metaphorical Deibel inscribes poetic concerns into the physical world." - Sessily Watt Full Review
From NewPages review of Ping-Pong, 2014:
- "Jeanine Deibel’s poem 'A-Team: Swinging the Lead' is a delightful trip through the possibilities of alliteration. Some favorite lines: 'My power animal is an antelope / I worship Angus idols / I curse in my alphabet soup.' Even this—to curse in alphabet soup—is that not a subversion of a comfortable classic? Is such subversion necessary, imperative, even just plausible, to bolster artistic freedom?Throughout Ping•Pong, even moments of levity harbor serious and thought-provoking undercurrents." - Cheyanne Gustason Full Review

Creative Writing Panel: "Dreams from the Borderland: Creative exploration of the concept of borders"
From Abstract: Individual pieces presented by the panel will explore various borders in content, in themes, or in the work’s relationship to craft and genre. Members of the panel represent both prose and poetry, and each will present work that explores, defines, or challenges borders in many forms, including the border between story and novel, borders between poetry genres, borders of geography, borders of society, and borders of the self. By presenting this work, this panel will seek to use creative writing to spark ideas and conversation regarding the placement, purpose, and impact of borders.
More specifically, I will be presenting poetry that explores the borders embedded in language, debunking limitations of past paradigms while constructing more inclusive, representative models for the present and future.

Graduate Research & Arts Symposium 2012
March 13, 2012 at NMSU Corbett Center, Dona Ana Room
Presentation re-scheduled for 4:40pm: "Contemporary Poetics and the Skewed Self"
From Abstract: Through reading a collection of my own poems, as well as works by other notable poets, I will explore how contemporary poetics is changing the idea of what constitutes self and identity. What is the "I" in poetry really representing? Is the relationship between the speaker and the "you" always a direct address or a reference to the reader? In the past, a first person account in verse was assumed to be a steadfast, unwavering view of the world. However, more contemporary movements in poetry have veered away from the all-knowing and monological "I" towards not only dialogical depictions of self, but also skewed and fractured renditions of identity. The skewed self in poetry may, on one hand, seem less personal, yet it possesses the ability to create multiple vantage points as well as close the distance between the reader and the creative work. This presentation will show how embracing the other side of human experience, displacement and fracture, through the use of a skewed self, not as an immobile speaker but as a poetic device, allows for the heightened execution of ambivalence and verisimilitude.
Honorable Mention: Keith Wilson/Joseph Samoza Poetry Prize 2011
Judge: Joni Wallace
Jeanine Deibel, Wallace observes, writes poems with “short lines— encompassing a ‘dog/that flew into a bun,’ the ‘fishes/in your head’ and a speaker who swallows ‘all the eggs/feeling guilty about the birds’— that are odd delights, like flashes of light in a darkened hallway.”
