BQB Publishing is excited to share the news that Chase J. Jackson, author of Whispers in the Dark, has set up a scholarship fund for young writers. The $1,000 scholarship was started in 2015 to help students who have a passion for writing and plan on majoring in English. The deadline is December 1st, 2016 and all applicants must submit a 750 word short story based on the story starter on Jackson’s website.
Born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, and now a resident of Newnan, Georgia, Chase J. Jackson developed an interest for writing suspense and mystery at an early age after reading all of R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps books. As a teenager, Chase began writing short stories and poetry based on his experiences. After winning a local poetry slam, Chase decided to bring his writing to life through the art of film. During his collegiate career at the University of West Georgia, Chase studied literature, cinematography, and film editing, ultimately graduating with a bachelor’s degree in English.
After college, Chase dedicated his time to writing his first novel, Whispers in the Dark.
In addition to writing, Chase is the creator of Chase-N-Dreamz Productions, which has filmed projects ranging from an awareness film for The Polycystic Kidney Disease Foundation to a short film about human trafficking in Haiti.
