Jeremy Norton

Jeremy Norton is a proud Washington, DC native. He’s received degrees from two universities in the Boston area despite a thorny relationship with the realm. He has lived in the Colorado mountains, the Tennessee mountains, the Minnesota not-mountains. He taught middle- and high-school literature at the end of the last century and taught creative writing at Minneapolis’ Loft Literary Center at the dawn of this century. Since 2000 he has been a firefighter/EMT with the Minneapolis Fire Department. He has a strong stomach and grim sense of humor. He won a spelling bee in second grade. It’s been a long, slow decline ever since.
