About Me

Let's Get Aquainted

I'm Jordan Rivers and I Love to read, write and teach.

I'm currently a judge for the NYC Midnight Short Story Challenge. You can also catch me teaching film production and creative writing for youth at Alive Youth Summer Camp and SocialWorks/KOK. 

I believe that if you decide to go to school  it should be in an area that you are passionate about. I received my Bachelors in Creative Writing from Columbia College Chicago and my MFA (Masters of Fine Arts) in Screenwriting from Full Sail University. I'm currently a student at DePaul University for my MFA in Creative Producing for Film and Television. 

I've written "The Village and The Spider that Grew and Grew" and "The Village and The Cat Hair Catastrophe". I Love reading my books at schools, libraries and meeting wonderful kids and families.
