J. W. M. Morgan (Jim)

Since 2000 I have taught and tutored English, reading, writing, and math at Second Start Adult Literacy Program of the Oakland Public Library, Oakland International High School, and the Refugee Transitions program. I grew up in New York and New Hampshire. I graduated from the writing program at Brown University where I won some prizes for short fiction. My family has deep roots in New York and New England. I've traveled extensively in Europe and the Americas and in China and worked in seven countries. I am an assistant editor at Narrative Magazine.
