Jacob King has been visually-impaired since birth. This means — among other things — that he literally sees the world differently than most folks, which has helped him be a better writer, speaker, and educator. His writing includes three chapbooks of poetry and the production of two original plays. His speaking has been featured at state and national conferences in the fields of education and advocacy for the blind and visually-impaired as well as competition in regional poetry slams. He has taught students ranging from sixth graders to sixty-year-olds in settings including alternative public charter schools, county-funded GED institutes, private universities, inner-city high schools, community colleges, juvenile detention centers, and prisons. And, of equal importance, Jacob is a father, husband, son, and comic book enthusiast.
