Bruce A. Jacobs is a poet, author, and musician. His newest poetry performances treat poetry and music as one. He founded the long-running First Tuesdays Poetry Reading Series at Irina's Cafe in Baltimore in the 1990s.
He has won poetry slams in Baltimore and at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe in New York City. His books of poems are SPEAKING THROUGH MY SKIN, which won the Naomi Long Madgett Prize from Michigan State University, and CATHODE RAY BLUES from Tropos Press. His latest nonfiction book is RACE MANNERS FOR THE 21st Century.
Bruce has appeared on NPR's "Talk of the Nation," C-SPAN, Sirius Satellite Radio, and other networks. His work has appeared in dozens of poetry journals and anthologies, including 180 MORE, edited by national Poet Laureate Billy Collins.
He plays drums, poems, and saxophone. He does not know how to do long division.
