J.T. The L.A. Storyteller has published critical essays, short stories, poetry, and more for L.A. since 2014.
Articles include opinions on education at L.A. schools, on L.A. Metro planning, on housing and small business in the city, L.A. books and more. J.T. The L.A. Storyteller also organizes to bring literary arts and communities together, including the LACC area’s first two annual “Back 2 School” parties, or two days of free arts and education workshops for at least 50 different parents, teenagers, and other members of the community. In March 2019, ‘J.T.’ was featured on the L.A. Times for a story on how different residents have ushered in or responded to the ongoing gentrification of Los Angeles. But when not publishing, J.T. The L.A. Storyteller is working on the new podcast and getting Los Cuentos merchandise off the ground, all for and all through Los Angeles, all heart and all dedicated to the place we call home.
