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.)
