‘human connection through creative expression’

Jonah Meyer is a writer and editor, based in Greensboro, North Carolina. With more than 30 years of experience and expertise in writing and editing – across genres – Jonah strives to exceed all of your writing and editing needs. He has had numerous publication credits to his name, including having written for various newspapers (news, feature stories, personality profiles, opinion/editorial pieces, and the like); poetry published in numerous literary magazines (both online and in print); publication of a half-dozen books of poetry; copyediting and writing of manuscripts and papers for clients; and other work as a freelance writer and editor, among additional creative endeavors.

Writing, in general – and penning poetry, more specifically – has long been Jonah’s primary passion. His raison d’être. His sweet jazz and savvy rock & roll. Jonah has been writing something – in one form or another – since he could first grasp a crayon.

Jonah earned his Bachelor’s in Cultural Anthropology and Comparative Religion (double-major), with a minor in Communications (1995), and Master’s in Library and Information Systems (2006), from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. He was on the staff with the Greensboro Public Library for nearly 14 years. Presently, Jonah focuses on his writing and editing career. He strongly believes everybody has a story to tell.

When not creating new written works, Jonah enjoys jamming out on guitar (and piano-forte), shooting street photography, studying neuroscience, and dabbling in Zen philosophy. He has had a hankering for orange sherbet since second grade.

Jonah’s work has appeared in: Coraddi, The Carolinian, JAB fiction + poetry, O.Henry Magazine, Ampersand Literary Journal, The Mountaineer, Carolina Peacemaker, Staccato Fiction, FORTH magazine, Found Spaces, bluntly magazine chicago, Greensboro Voice, ArtQuest, Introvert, adopt-a-beard, DreamHarvest, American Crisis, The Blotter, Bohemian Renaissance, peace/poem, yaimundai, High Point Enterprise, Greensboro News & Record, Reidsville Review, Alamance News, Guilford County Women’s Journal, US Review of Books, Thespis Books NYC, WTAP, SIXFold, and more

Jonah Meyer is the founding editor of Balderdash Literary Magazine and Walt Whitman’s Beard.
