Jim Breslin is the author of Shoplandia, a humorous novel about the working lives of show hosts, producers, and crew at a home shopping channel, which was inspired by Jim's seventeen years as a television producer at QVC, and which was called "a raucous novel" by Huffington Post Books.
His short story collection, Elephant, came out in 2011. Jim's short fiction has appeared in Schuylkill Valley Journal, Molotov Cocktail, Turk's Head Review, and other journals. He has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize and was the writer in residence at Elizabethtown College in the summer of 2014.
His micro-publishing project, Oermead Press, has also published two anthologies, West Chester Story Slam - Selected Stories and Chester County Fiction, and a poetry chapbook, Exit Pursued by a Bear by Virginia Beards.
Jim is the founder of the West Chester Story Slam and the co-founder of the Lancaster Story Slam
