Ronald Dzerigian (Creative Writing)
Ronald Lawrence Dzerigian’s poems primarily take refuge in the rural landscape of
the great Central Valley and, within that space, tend to explore the transformative
qualities of human nature. He received the C.G. Hanzlicek Fellowship while working
on his MFA at California State University, Fresno, and has been a two-time recipient
of the Academy of American Poets' Ernesto Trejo Memorial Prize in 2014 and 2015. His
poems have recently been published by The Academy of American Poets, The Winter Anthology, Watershed
Review, and Santa Ana River Review.
