~~~ Winner of the 2016 Blue Light Book Award ~~~ "Cameron Scott writes like a river... his is the language of water and gravity, the silence of an empty desert basin, the smell of sage on cool mornings. The Book of Cold Mountain is a place where words on a page become a porcupine on the road or dandelion seeds in the wind. And these things, these tangible, familiar things, become something more visceral: desire, hope, longing; truths you recognize but have never been able to articulate... ." -Dylan Tomine, Author of Closer to the Ground ~~~~~ Cameron Keller Scott graduated from the University of Arizona with an MFA in poetry. Most recently he has worked for Chiloquin Visions in Progress and Fishtrap as a writer in residence, as well as helping to implement Fishtrap Story Lab (www.fishtrap.org).
