James Penha

Hot and cold in the caldera atop Mount Bromo in Java. This is my kind of equinox: a place where opposites co-exist.



A native New Yorker, James Penha has lived for the past twenty-five years in Indonesia. He has been nominated for Pushcart Prizes in fiction and in poetry. Snakes and Angels, a collection of his adaptations of classic Indonesian folk tales, won the 2009 Cervena Barva Press fiction chapbook contest; No Bones to Carry, a volume of his poetry, earned the 2007 New Sins Press Editors’ Choice Award. Penha edits The New Verse News, an online journal of current-events poetry.
