Jáe Simpson hails from the great state of South Carolina. He’s a 2010 graduate of the South Carolina Governor’s School for the Arts and Humanities with a concentration in Creative Writing. In his spare time Jáe likes reading poetry, rolling down country fields, and the delightful tunes of Regina Spektor. He is a freshman at Berea College studying theater while still writing part-time. One could usually find Jáe sitting in a gazebo, discussing the existence of the many skinny squirrels that lurk around Berea’s campus. After he graduates from Berea, he wishes to get his MFA in Poetry at Warren Wilson College in Asheville, North Carolina.
