Jim Mancinelli

Jim Mancinelli holds no academic positions, but can sustain a full lotus for 400 milliseconds. Reborn at fifty, Jim is a jazz-hound with Baroque ears, Beat eyes, and a touch of Zeppelin for color. Poetry is the thing, but prose has become a fine neighbor. Jim is currently working on a series of poems informed by the work of a true trip-master, Salvador Dali. Jim lives in NJ with his partner Dave and fond memories of Potter the Blind Bird Dog. Jim has a poem coming out in the summer/fall edition of Sea Change, a new poetry journal. He has been a featured reader for Poets + Prophets andhas self-published his first chapbook, Primer.
