Jack Grapes is an award-winning poet, actor, playwright, teacher, editor, and publisher. He's received several fellowships in literature from the National Endowment for the Arts, and his play, "Circle Of Will," ran for several years in L.A., winning theatre-critics' awards for Best Comedy and Best Performance by an Actor. The play was revived last summer and garnered rave reviews again, with critics calling it "the cleverest original work seen in years" and "an intelligent piece of theatre which peers into the very foundations of drama itself." For the last 20 years, he has edited and published ONTHEBUS, a nationally acclaimed literary journal that the Los Angeles Times said was "destined to be a major aftershock in American literary history." Grapes is the author of over a dozen books of poetry, and his most recent book, A Time To Sing, A Time To Dance, was praised by numerous critics, including Sally Kalson of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, who wrote: "Grapes has been called an everyman of poetry because his work cuts to the bone of basic human truth without the pretense that characterizes much of what passes for contemporary poetry. Gentle and merciless, funny and brutal, Grapes is a 20th-century Diogenes, searching for the honest man within himself." His book, Method Writing, based on the concepts he's developed in his writing classes over the last 35 years, is due for publication this year. He is also working on several nonfiction books, all due for publication this coming year: How to Read like a Writer, The Tender Agonies of Charles Bukowski, and Etherized upon a Table, a history of modern poetry from Homer to the present. Grapes lives in L.A. And will present the keynote, "The Accidents of Genius" and conduct consultation appointments.
