This is the webpage of Jason Marc Harris: howdy! I have recently resigned my position as Associate Professor at the Florida Institute of Technology and am now a graduate student at Bowling Green State University in the MFA program for Creative Writing–fiction in particular. I am active in a variety of writing projects, from critical books to novels, short stories, screenplays (including time-travel, the end of the Mayan calendar in 2012 (well, change the date, and as good as new), folklore of the British Isles, remote-viewing etc.), video game design, and comic books. See loglines below. I’m always interested in new creative projects–including collaborations–so get in touch!
