Author: Jim Ross

Jim Ross jumped into creative pursuits in 2015 after a rewarding career in public health research. He’s since published in almost 150 journals and anthologies on four continents. Publications include Bombay Gin, Columbia Journal, Ilanot Review, Lunch Ticket, The Atlantic, The Manchester Review, and Typehouse. Recent photo essays include Barren, Kestrel, Litro, New World Writing, So It Goes, and Wordpeace. A piece in Ilanot Review showed how postcards originally provided the equivalent of text messaging. A piece in Barren examined the role postcards played in arguing for and against women’s suffrage. A nonfiction piece led to a role in a high-profile documentary limited series to be released imminently on VICE and BBC networks. Jim and his wife—parents of two health professionals on the front lines and grandparents of five preschoolers—split their time between the city and the mountain. Long ago, he attended high school two blocks from Central Park.
