About Cameron Finch: 

I am a multi-genre artist, whose work has appeared in Dream Pop Press, Orange QuarterlyAcross the Margin, Exceptions Journal, Midwestern Gothic, and Moonchild Magazine. My short story, “Contested Colors,” won the Fiction Prize for the Exceptions Journal Ways of Seeing Contest. My flash fiction, “Tributes,” was a finalist for Midwestern Gothic‘s Summer Flash Fiction Contest in 2015. My short story, “Frozen Locks,” received an Honorable Mention in the Glimmer Train Jan/Feb 2018 Short Story Award for New Writers.

In addition to creative writing, I also write freelance articles, reviews, and interviews for the Michigan Quarterly Review blog and Buzzworthy online news and media site. I have taught creative writing workshops for Honors college freshmen at University of Michigan and for children ages 6-15 at 826michigan Writing Center.

I grew up in Michigan, so yes, I do point at my mitten-shaped hand when I talk to people about where I’m from. I studied Creative Writing and English Literature at University of Michigan and am currently an MFA in Writing and Publishing candidate at Vermont College of Fine Arts, where I serve as Managing Editor of the VCFA literary journal, Hunger Mountain.

I am a Libra. I collect floatie pens. I am an intermediate tap dancer and have a minor fear of fire alarms. I think best whilst hula hooping or taking a walk, and I drink a lot of tea.

I am currently at work on my first novel.
