About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.

    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.
