Ron L. Dowell is the author of Watts UpRise (World Stage Press, 2022), finalist of the Press 53 Award for Poetry. A 2018 PEN Emerging Voices Fellow, Dowell's work reflects his deep bond with South Central Los Angeles where he was born and lives to this day. After a lifetime of occupations--including accountant, counselor, anthropologist, journalist, criminal justice critic, and community activist--Dowell has turned his focus to writing poetry and fiction. His short story collection, Crooked Out of Compton, is forthcoming from Running Wild Press's RIZE imprint.
