Cameron is a Barbican Young Poet as well as a member of BAR. They are a Mancunian who has found themselves down south. As such, they long to feel the rain upon their face for 2/3rds of the year. Such positivity has found its way into their poetry, where they often address mental health, childhood and pop culture. They are currently working toward their first collection.
In case it’s escaped your notice, they refer to themselves with gender-neutral pronouns. This is because Cameron identifies as non-binary/trans. They often address this in their work and are usually happy to talk about it.
They have performed at Curious Festival, where they wrote a piece in Anglo Saxon and the Barbican Weekender, producing work in response to UVAs Momentum exhibition. They were also part of the team responsible for curating National Poetry Day 2014 at the Southbank Centre.
Cameron has decided to dub themselves ‘The Regent of Razzmatazz’, a title they chose for a number of reasons:
- They have an inflated sense of self
- It’s a gender-neutral title
- It implies that I’m not the ruler of razzmatazz, merely its caretaker until it comes of age
- It explains the blue hair and bright clothes
Outside of poetry, they like to box and drink Pepsi. Not at the same time, obviously.
