Sometimes known as the “math
poet,” John Laurits is a poet,
journalist, activist, & math-enthusiast from Oregon, who holds a useless degree in eastern philosophy & all of the impossible debt which came with it. Laurits (perhaps, unfortunately) gained a small amount of notoriety in 2016, for a series of articles that demystified the math behind the delegate system of the democratic primaries. He scribbles his work hastily in cafes across the country but he is most often sighted in the Pacific Northwest ( as he prefers the rainy weather there for reasons California will probably never understand ).
While the majority of his writing has been self-published, John Laurits has written & reported for indie-media outlets like Real Progressives & PoliticsAndStuff.org, and has appeared on podcasts, radio stations, & talk-shows, including KPFA 94.1FM, Salamone (the Podcast!), & #OurRevolutionTV’s The Robust Opposition. John’s articles have been cited by RT’s Lee Camp, Naked Capitalism, & the BBC, and have been shared on social media by pretty hip individuals, like Jill Stein & Mark Rufalo.
If you’ve enjoyed John’s writing & journalism, please consider supporting it with a donation at this link to his PayPal — think of it like buying a cup of coffee for a writer! If you enjoy his articles often & if you’re able, you can make a monthly contribution of $1, $2, or $3, through John’s Patreon page.
