A survivor of a traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic epilepsy, Seattle writer, Jason M. Thornberry is currently pursuing an MFA in Creative Writing at Chapman University as he navigates the jagged social and creative cultural landscape of a divided America. Jason's fiction, poetry, essays, and creative nonfiction appear in The Stranger, Praxis, Dissident Voice, Entropy, ALAN Review, and elsewhere.
His work examines family, disability, social justice, and the ways that power shapes and informs story. Jason previously taught writing and literature and Seattle Pacific University. He reads poetry for TAB and he enjoys birdwatching, especially crows—the keepers of the earth.
