Jason Walter received a BA in Comparative Literature from Clemson University in December 2004. In August 2006, he received his MA in Comparative Literature with a minor in playwriting from Clemson University. Walter has taught English at Clemson University, Seneca High School, and Tri-County Technical College. He currently teaches at the University of South Carolina in Aiken while also working at the Morris Museum of Art.

 

Walter has made animated music videos for Burger Records, and one of hiss music videos was even featured on BurgerTV. Walter has also been self-publishing his graphic novels and comic strips since 2011. In 2014, his sequential art was featured in the anthology Double Knickles Forever. Walter was given permission by NYC poet, Gillian McCain, to use her poem “Holes” as the lyrics for a song that he recorded on his first 2014 solo album, No Funnies, as well as created sequential art versions of McCain’s poems “Holes,” “Chaos,” and “Child.” In 2014, NYC novelist Sylvia Sanza allowed Walter to use excerpts from her novel Alex Wants To Call It Love as lyrics for Walter’s song “Angel in Reverse” that he recorded on his solo album, which was released by the record label Academia Tapes. Next month Walter plans to release a second self-titled EP with his band Gloom Cocoon under Academia Tapes which will be available on their label Pizza Hell.

 

Currently Walter is avidly working to clearly define addiction criticism in literature studies because as it stands, entities such as Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous have dominated the field of study with their religious and conservative rhetoric. In April 2016, Walter finished his first fiction novel, Jonah, which heavily focuses on his approach to addiction literary criticism.
