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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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 couple 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 and watercolor 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 Geist, The Rio Grande Review, Rock & Sling, Redivider, and other magazines and journals. He has edited four anthologies of speculative writing including Imaginarium 4: The Best Canadian Speculative Writing and Wrestling with Gods (Tesseracts 18). His first collection of short stories, The Angels of Our Better Beasts, came out in 2016 from ChiZine and was longlisted for the Sunburst Award. His story, “Postlude to the Afternoon of a Faun,” was recently a finalist for the 2020 Eugie Foster Memorial Award and 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 faith, and a 2013 graduate of the Lambda Literary Retreat for Emerging LGBT Voices. He was also a 2001 Fulbright Fellow to Canada (Yukon).
His work is an 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. 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 paints in Columbus today, and visits the Yukon when he can, and keeps his eyes open for bears to hug.
Jerome earned a bachelor’s degree in History, English and Theatre at Wayland Baptist University; a Master’s 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, writer, and freelance editor. You can find his Art on his Art Page
