Yuan Changming, 12-time Pushcart nominee and multiple poetry award winner, is probably the world’s most widely published contemporary poetry author who speaks Mandarin but writes in English. Growing up in an isolated village, Yuan started to learn the English alphabet in Shanghai at age nineteen and authored several monographs on translation before leaving China as an international student. With a PhD in English from the University of Saskatchewan, Yuan currently lives in Vancouver, where he edits Poetry Pacific with Allen Yuan. Since mid-2005, Yuan has had poetry appearing in more than 1,900 literary outlets across 48 countries, which include Best Canadian Poetry (2009, 2012, 2014), the Best of the Best Canadian Poetry (2008-2017), BestNewPoemsOnline & Poetry Daily. In recent years, Yuan was nominated for & served on the jury for Canada’s National Magazine Awards (poetry category). Currently, Yuan is working on his first (hybrid or cultural) novel Edening.
