The Stories of the Upstate™ #253: (John Jeter) "For a few years growing up, I had the biggest, best, safest playground and 1, 800 older brothers.

             Story #253 comes from Converse College adjunct professor and freelance writer, John Jeter.


John Jeter has a passion for telling stories and he's found several ways to tell stories throughout his career.  For several years, John told stories through his work in the newspaper industry. Then, for 20 yrs, it was music that he used to tell stories, not his own music, but the music of the singers and bands that he highlighted at Greenville's Handle Bar. Now, John's storytelling is done through his freelance contributions to local magazines and through his work as an adjunct professor at Converse College teaching music business.  "I'm a storyteller in all my roles," a fitting description for John Jeter and his career.
