Changming Yuan b. 1961
Five-time Pushcart nominee and author of Chansons of a Chinaman (2009) and Landscaping (2013), Yuan grew up in rural China and currently works as an English tutor in Vancouver. Co-editor of Poetry Pacific, Yuan admits to being desperate to getting published -- indeed, he has had poems published in more than 730 publications in 28 countries and three planets. Overall, though, he admits that none of them are very good.
