Artist rendering of the author ten to fifteen years from now.

Jason Porter writes fiction. He is a graduate of the Hunter College MFA program. His novel, Why Are You So Sad?, was shortlisted for the Paris Literary Prize and was published by Plume, in January, 2014. Currently, Jason is writing a new novel with his left hand while also revising another new novel with his right hand. Because he suffers from Chronic Restless Attention Problems (CRAP), he is also working on a collection of 250 stories all 250 words in length and releasing them in audio on a weekly basis. This program, which he is calling Grownups Are Lucky, is what is worst described as a "podcast."  (LitHub recently published a profile on the endeavor. It’s smartly written and includes mention of the author digesting food. You should read it.)

If you want to read more about the author, his novel, his strange ideas about strange ideas, or other fluff, we have collected links to various media attention here. You are also welcome to reach out. Jason is a people person in the sense that he is a person who has learned to live with other people. Go ahead. Send him a note and see if he writes back.
