About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet departed the Patheos network in order to escape click-bait advertisements that were offending him and his readers. He will re-launch Looking Closer at lookingcloser.org soon. He is the author of The Auralia Thread, a four-volume fantasy series that begins with Auralia's Colors, and a memoir of "dangerous moviegoing" called Through a Screen Darkly. He teaches creative writing and film studies; speaks internationally about art and faith; served as Writer-in-Residence at Covenant College; and is employed by Seattle Pacific University as a project manager, copyeditor, and writer.

    Ditto on “Illinois” needing to grow on you. At first I was rather put off by the oddness of it, although the softer songs I immediately liked. Now, much of the music is just so joyful to listen to, and I really have not even begun to explore the lyrics. Oh, and I work about half a mile from the Great Godfrey Maze, but have never been. Sufjan might not have either. I heard that some songs were informed by personal contact with a place and others just from research and curiousity. Cool.
