Bio

About Cameron Finch: 

I am a short story writer and poet, whose work has appeared in Dream Pop Press, Orange QuarterlyAcross the Margin, Exceptions Journal, Midwestern Gothic, the Emerging Writers Network, 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.

In addition to creative writing, I also write freelance articles, reviews, and interviews for the Michigan Quarterly Review blog, the Ann Arbor Current Magazine, and Buzzworthy online news and media site. I have also taught creative writing workshops at University of Michigan and 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 also serve as Managing Editor of the VCFA literary journal, Hunger Mountain.

I am a Libra. I collect floatie pens. I am learning how to tap dance 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.
