A dedicated, passionate, hard worker, Jama has done more for us than we will probably ever know. Her drive and her devotion are admirable, and her contributions to the Midwest Writers Workshop immeasurable, but what truly sets Jama apart is, well, Jama. She’s strong and has a way of seeing the world that is admirable, full of hope, full of happiness.
The Midwest Writers Workshop wouldn’t be the same without her, and this site exists for one purpose and one purpose only: to celebrate Jama. If we had a giant box of chocolates, we’d give it to her. If we had flowers, they’d be hers. But all we have is this website — and although she deserves so much more, this will have to do.
