Jerome Stueart writes fiction, memoir, science fiction and fantasy. His work has been published in journals, magazines, newspapers and on the radio–a list of which  can be found under Written Work.  He’s a 2007 graduate of Clarion Science Fiction and Fantasy Writing Workshop in San Diego.  He teaches workshops on writing science fiction/fantasy and on writing about your faith.

In both 2003 and 2008, Jerome was a featured writer with the Young Authors Conference and Yukon Writers Festival held in Whitehorse.  He helps out with the festival now as Emcee.  (Occasionally he emcees other things–like Oprys– and sings for the Yukon Quest banquet.)

Jerome has helped promote two science fiction/fantasy writing workshops in the Yukon—YukonSpec for adults and Rocketfuel for teens, and has taught cartooning to kids through City programming and through the schools.  He also has another blog, Talking Dog, with gay Christian resources. He hopes to do more work in schools for LGBT teens.

Jerome earned a degree in History, English and Theatre at Wayland Baptist University; a Masters degree in Creative Writing at University of Missouri-Columbia; and finally a PhD in English at Texas Tech University in 2005. He came up to the Yukon on a Fulbright Fellowship in 2001 to study northern science, where he loved Whitehorse enough to want to come back. He immigrated to Canada in 2007.  For nine years, he lived in a small apartment in Whitehorse, YT–land of Moose and snow.    As a Yukoner, he’s worked for Nakai Theatre, the Yukon Bureau of Statistics, the Arctic Institute of North America, Yukon College and the City of Whitehorse, as well as been a trolley conductor, a vaudevillian for the Frantic Follies, and a janitor.  He just finished a stint as the Marketing Director and Development Coordinator for the Yukon Arts Centre, telling people about great shows and great art.

Recently, in 2013, he went on the road across North America to promote his workshop, Writing Faith, in local churches.  For five months he’s staying in Dayton, OH, and beginning in January, he’ll be staying in Grand Rapids, MI, teaching.

He is writing several novellas all at once.  (Fool.)

  1. Hi Jerome:

    I interviewed you the last time you were tapped for the Young Authors’ Conference, and here we are again. My task for the conference is to prepare promo pieces on all the writers, to appear in the Star the week before and of the conference. Would you have time for a telephone interview later this week and where could I reach you to do this?

  2. I was actually in one of your writing workshops for the Young Author’s Conference in 2003, when I was still stuck in F.H. Collins. It’s been a while, but I finally got my first short story published in On Spec magazine (and can thus add my name to the list of Yukon speculative fiction writers whose work has ended up there). Who knows what those two days might have had to do with it.

    Regards,

  3. Excellent!! Good for you, Michal. I’ll google ya. Good to know that the YAC helps a bit, and that other Yukon writers are out there.

  4. Your writing is excellent – a rare talent.
    And forgive me for saying so, but you remind me a lot of someone we both seem to know. It’s the area around the eyes. I can’t believe no one told you that yet.

    Well… just let me say, he had a charming smile, your father had.
    Get in touch if you like.

    Best Wishes
    Anita

  5. Well first of all Jerome…I would like to say that you not only write but sing very well…secondly I like the Fogelberg jacket as well…Dan has always meant a lot to me :) Finally, I am here to ask for a favor; I saw your delightful arial view overlooking Bennett Lake in ‘Whats Up Yukon’ February 11 this year….and was wondering I could conceivably obtain a clearer copy of that or if you have some more like that one. I would love to have it in my personal collection because that lake has special meaning to me. I have flown over the lake a couple times but never captured it on film like you have. And you had such beautiful weather.

  6. Hey Jerome! We share a publisher. And an interest in the Clarion blog. I remember reading “Lemmings in the Third Year”! It stood out.
