Cameron Quan Louie won his first poetry contest in 2011 for a mediocre love-lyric that somehow managed to rip off both Robert Creeley and W.C. Williams in less than 25 lines. Since then, Cameron has served on the UA Poetry Center’s advisory board, worked with Wave Books in Seattle, and received an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Washington. In 2016, he was a Multiplying Mediums Fellow and a recipient of the Bill and Ruth True Family Prize. His work has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize, and he received the 2017 McLeod-Grobe Prize for Poetry. His poems, prose, and erasures have appeared or are forthcoming in Hobart, The Gravity of the Thing, Duende, jubilat, Timber, Sonora Review, The Spectacle, Fourth Genre, and Quarterly West, among others. Cameron lives in Tucson, where he serves on the board of directors with POG: Poetry in Action! and continues to rip off both Creeley and Williams on the regular.
