Brief Biography:

David James has published three books and five chapbooks.  More than thirty of his one-act plays have been produced from New York to California, including five of them off-Broadway.

Geosi Gyasi: Do you think of yourself as a poet or writer? Can you distinguish between the two?

David James: I see myself primarily as a poet since I’ve written that the longest.  But I also write fiction and plays and essays. All writing feeds on itself, so any manipulation of language strengthens my skills as a poet.  What you call yourself, a writer or poet, is inconsequential: it’s what you write that counts.

The rest of the interview will be available in my forthcoming book (2016) by Lamar University Press Books.
