I'm an author of fiction, literary nonfiction, and criticism, an associate professor of English at the College of New Jersey, and a member of the MFA in Writing faculty at Vermont College of Fine Arts.

This is the second version of jessrow.com. Many thanks to Kara Mansfield Morehouse for the original design. I’ve switched to WordPress for a more easily updated, user-friendly, bloggable experience.

Above you can find an updated bio and author photo (my how the years slip by), an archive of online writings, interviews, and, coming soon, more information on my new book of stories, Nobody Ever Gets Lost, which will appear in early February.
