Fall 2017 Writer-in-Residence Donato Mancini

The Department of English Language, Literature, and Creative Writing is proud to announce Donato Mancini as University of Windsor’s fall 2017 writer-in-residence.

Donato Mancini is available for one-on-one editorial consultation. Please contact the Dept. of English Secretary at 519-253-3000 x2288 or to arrange for manuscript submission and an appointment with Dr. Mancini.

Dr. Mancini's office hours this term are Wednesdays and Thursdays 2:00 - 4:00 PM. A limited number of students who would like to meet with Dr. Mancini but cannot make these hours may book alternate appointments. He asks that submissions be a maximum of 10 pages of poetry or prose.

Donato Mancini makes visual and procedural poetry, bookworks, and visual art. His books and chapbooks include Snowline (2015), Buffet World (2011), Fact ‘N’ Value (2011), Hell Passport no.22 (2008), Æthel (2007), 58 Free Coffees (2006), and Ligatures (2005). Notable exhibitions of Mancini’s visual artworks have included exhibitions through Artspeak, Western Front, Gallery Atsui, Malaspina Printmaker’s Society, and CSA. He performed with Gabriel Saloman in their noisepoetry/noisecomedy/noisemusic ensemble in the 2013 LIVE! Biennale of performance art, and as part of Concrete Scores at Open Space. Mancini’s published critical writing includes work on the archive, time, and memory in Anamnesia: Unforgetting (2011), and a discourse analysis of poetry reviews in You Must Work Harder to Write Poetry of Excellence (2012). His previous full-length book, Loitersack (New Star, 2014), is a labyrinthine commonplace book where critical, theoretical, and paraliterary tendencies intersect in the forms of poetry, poetics, theory, theory theatre, laugh particles, and many, many questions. He holds a Ph.D. in English from the University of British Columbia and will be a SSHCC-funded post-doctorate at Johns Hopkins University as of 2018.
