Welcome to my blog. These are my works and other projects over the last 10-15 years. Through the summer, I’ll be working on making it easier for you to find things. Over the last couple of years, like many people, I migrated to social media to do my chatting and announcing, and those social media posts are not easy to find in Facebook and Twitter–that’s a lot of scrolling. Some of those were about conferences I attended, and I really want to talk more about them here. So I will be trying to take the social media posts from the last two years, at least, and transfer some of them over here so they can be collected and easier to locate. Those will be on my Blog.
Below, you’ll find out a little more about me. If you have questions or would like to get in touch, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com. I’m reliant on my artwork now to keep me fed and the bills paid–so I’m in the studio every day. But I should be able to answer most of the time within a few days.
Thank you! Enjoy the site!
Jerome Stueart writes fiction, memoir, science fiction and fantasy, often through a queer perspective. He is also an acrylic painter and portrait artist.
His written work has been published in journals, magazines, newspapers and on the radio–a full list of which can be found under Written Work and Books. It includes writing in F&SF, Lightspeed’s Queers Destroy Science Fiction, Tor.com, Fantasy, Strange Horizons, On Spec, as well as in The Rio Grande Review, Rock & Sling, Redivider, and other magazines and journals. He has edited four anthologies of speculative writing, and is currently a co-editor on a book about heavy metal scenes around the world. His first collection of short stories, The Angels of Our Better Beasts, came out in 2016 from ChiZine Publications and was longlisted for the Sunburst Award. His story, “Postlude to the Afternoon of a Faun,” has recently been shortlisted for the 2020 Eugie Foster Memorial Award and is a finalist for the 2020 World Fantasy Award in Short Fiction.
He’s a 2007 graduate of Clarion Science Fiction and Fantasy Writing Workshop in San Diego, a 1996-97 Milton Center Fellow for writers of the Christian imagination, and a 2013 graduate of the Lambda Literary Retreat for Emerging LGBT Voices.
His work finds itself in the unlikely entanglement of queer, scifi-fantasy and faith. He also teaches workshops on writing science fiction/fantasy and writing about faith. While he grew up in the US, mostly rural Missouri and Texas, he also spent nearly 10 years in the Yukon Territory–at first on a Fulbright, then staying because he fell in love with Whitehorse, its capital city. He eventually became a Canadian citizen in 2014. In Whitehorse, he became a science fiction writer, as well as a trolley conductor, a vaudevillian for the Frantic Follies, an interpreter for the Beringia Centre, the Yukon’s Ice Age museum, and Marketing Director and Development Coordinator for the Yukon Arts Centre, telling people about great shows and art. He eventually left the Yukon to move to Dayton Ohio for love. While, hey, love didn’t work out the way he’d hoped, he teaches and paints in Columbus today, and visits the Yukon when he can, and keeps his eyes open for bears to hug.
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 a PhD in English at Texas Tech University in 2005, and is currently enrolled in an MA in Engaged Humanities and the Creative Life at Pacifica Graduate Institute.
Update: Teaching gigs were scarce in Jan 2019, and so he is now a full-time artist and freelance editor. You can find his Art on his Art Page
