Jim Freeman

Jim Freeman participated in the creation of Alchemy and has often contributed with his poetry during the open mic segments.

His primary domain though is fiction and since moving to the Czech Republic in 1991, he has completed 3 novels, one screenplay and several short plays. His one act play "Colors" won the 1999 Pennsylvania Playhouse competition and was produced together with 2 other winning plays. "Colors" then won the audience vote.

Another field of his writing activities is political opinion and essays, many of which were published as "letters to the editor" in the New York Times, International Herald Tribune, Chicago Tribune and the Prague Post. His columns appear with spotty regularity in Progressive Populist. This reading was a sampler from Jim's novels.
