Blake N. Campbell

Blake N. Campbell was born in 1993 and grew up in northeastern Pennsylvania. He graduated summa cum laude from Emerson College in 2015 with a BA in writing, literature, and publishing. Campbell is the winner of the 2015 Aliki Perroti and Seth Frank Most Promising Young Poet Award for his poem “Bioluminescence." About “Bioluminescence,” judge Linda Gregerson said, “Wedded to the demanding specificities of the natural world, this poem is also wonderfully open to the transformative powers of devout attentiveness.  Its technical mastery—the supple deployment of those couplets—is a fine extension of the sympathetic imagination in which it is grounded.” Campbell lives in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts.
