Artist Biography

Adrian De Leon is the author of Rouge (forthcoming 2018), published by Mawenzi House. His poetry and short fiction have appeared in a wide range of journals in Canada and the United States. He studied English Literature and Creative Writing at the University of Toronto Scarborough with an amazing group of immigrant writers of color. His creative honors thesis, entitled "Rouge" (which would become the manuscript of his first book), especially benefited from the mentorship of Daniel Scott Tysdal, and the generous and witty editing of South Asian Canadian poet Shawn Salik.
