About Jim Janus

I read classic literature and write to emulate styles of classic authors.

In 2022 I participated in NYC Midnight‘s Short Story Challenge. In the first round my story “The Turrim” placed 3rd in a group of 30 submissions.

In 2015 my radio play “Freedom Stream” was performed by RG Productions in a one-time show at PM&L Theater in Antioch, Illinois.

“Freedom Stream” was originally a 500-word story I wrote in 2014 for Waukegan Public Library’s Annual Ray Bradbury Creative Contest. It placed first in the written adult category.

I’ve participated in writing workshops at StoryStudio Chicago and Chicago Dramatists.
