Jay McAleer

Jay-McAleer-BW-200x300Jay McAleer will be our featured performer on Monday, 10 March 2014.  (What, when, where and how at Wedgwood Easy Speak.)

McAleer is a poetry and fiction writer from Seattle. He has a BFA from DePaul University and a certificate in Literary Fiction from the University of Washington. He has previously published essays in the short-lived magazine The Austin Idealist and is currently at work on a novel.

McAleer is a 2013 Fellow of the Jack Straw Writers Program.  Here is what they say about his writing over at Jack Straw Productions:

“Pulling ideas from his experience in the world of theater, Jay McAleer takes the reader behind the scenes of a traveling show. The cheeky interaction of his characters lends authenticity to his portrayal of stage life.”

“Cheeky” was the word.  That’s right.  Don’t be fooled by the mild-mannered smile in the picture.  You’ve been warned.

Listen to a Jack Straw podcast of McAleer’s work plus an interview.
