Reading JJusek 2

“One day I will find the right words, and they will be simple.” — Jack Kerouac

My name is Jeremy Jusek. I am the current poet laureate of Parma Ohio, I host the Ohio Poetry Association's podcast Poetry Spotlight, and I started the Flamingo Writers' Guild. I've authored two books, with a few more currently incubating. My OG background was playwriting, though I ultimately endorsed a lifelong passion by getting my MFA in poetry from Arcadia University. I've been a freelance writer for over a decade, and taught undergraduate level English and film courses for roughly half that time. I do readings and public appearances.
