Who is Jason Preu? Poetry, fiction, fake wikipedia entries…Inspired by office culture, the philosophies of dependent origination, Dada, no mind, and rap music, Jason writes to elicit smiles, tickle kundalinis, instigate internal riots, and showcase the strangeness of otherwise pedestrian situations. His recent books include More Poems About Purple Wizards and Neon Bright Exceptionalisms (EMP, 2017) and the illuminated poem To Grow A Hole the Size of Everything (collaboration with Jeanette Powers, EMP, 2017) . In 2016, Jason’s performative collaboration with composer and fellow Charlotte Street Foundation resident, Brian Padavic, was the subject of the feature film The Avocado Among Other Fruits, Live from Prospero's.
Jason is also one of the Head Honchos of FountainVerse: KC Small Press Poetry Fest, October 12-14, 2018. Info at www.facebook.com/fountainverse/ and https://www.fountainverse.com/
