Cam Scott is a poet, critic, and non-musician from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Treaty One Territory. His poetry collection, ROMANS/SNOWMARE (ARP), is both a daybook of anti-capitalist ideation and a homoerotic reinvention of the prairie long poem as it resonates with a love of language and experiment. A chapbook, WRESTLERS, was published by Greying Ghost in 2017. His next book The Vanishing Signs will be released by ARP Books in spring 2022.
His most recent musical projects are “Swolowes” and “Cold-catcher,” which span free improvisation and field recording as well as electro-acoustic genres. As a critic, his independent research is focused on the politics of twentieth-century literary avant-gardes and their executors. He divides his time between the prairies and Brooklyn, New York.
