Jacqueline Turner's third poetry collection, Seven Into Even, published when she was living near Horseshoe Bay in West Vancouver, was partially written in Australia when she was Queensland's inaugural poet-in-residence at the Judith Wright Centre for the Contemporary Arts in Brisbane. It reworks Edmund Spenser's The Faerie Queene with contemporary settings and issues. She has published two preceding book-length collections of poetry, as well as numerous chapbooks. Turner manages a literary webzine called "The News" and has written poetry reviews for The Georgia Straight. She has also taught writing at Simon Fraser University and the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design in Vancouver.
