Hi there! I write about literature, the (online) culture industry, Asianness in America, Hong Kong politics, and how capitalism and/or the process of racialization have produced and deformed all of the above. My work appears in The Drift, The Nation, The Outline (RIP), The Point, and Popula.
I will be attending the Iowa Writers’ Workshop in fall 2021 for fiction and was one of the 2020 A Public Space Writing Fellows. I was awarded the 2018 Les River Fellowship for Young Novelists at the University of Chicago, where I studied philosophy and literature. Sometimes I host AAWW Lunch for the Asian Americans’ Writers Workshop. Mostly I just fact-check.
(Pertinent biographical fact: I was born in Hong Kong just before the handover and was raised there until I made the mistake of leaving home. Hence an interest in Hong Kong Anglophone literature.)
