About Jim Janus

I read classic literature and write to emulate the 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.

I originally wrote “Freedom Stream” as a 500-word story for Waukegan Public Library’s 30th Annual Ray Bradbury Creative Contest. It placed first.

Since then I’ve attended writing workshops at StoryStudio Chicago and Chicago Dramatists.
