Prior to coming to Write On, Door County, Jerod served as the Senior Director of Artistic Development at the Loft Literary Center in Minneapolis, where he worked for 19 years. Since 2009, he has served on the Board of Trustees of the Association of Writers and Writing Programs (AWP) and has served on their Executive Committee since 2012. He has twice served as chair of their national conference, which attracts between 12,000 and 14,000 writers annually. He has published poetry, fiction, and nonfiction in a number of print and online literary journals and magazines, including Ploughshares, Hayden’s Ferry Review, and Blithe House Quarterly.
I am proud to be part of the beginning of Write On, Door County. In the summer of 2013, I took what many might consider a huge leap of faith and left my job as Program Director at one of the oldest writing organizations in the country to head this new center. It is the best thing I’ve ever done, and I hope you will join me on this amazing adventure.
