I began writing in 8th grade and I remember that the

experience was intimidating.

We know this person as RisinSun28

(formerly RisinSun82 ) on aol.

He has been a regular in the Late Night Poets Chat

since it began.

Jason first discovered the room by noticing it on AOL

chat lists and thinks it is crazy.

He feels that the LNP Poets are .. Deists.

Jason also runs our Late Night Poets “Tag You’re It”

Improv Poetry Night
