Writer, Editor, Critic, Translator
I am a writer, critic, literary translator, and co-editor of Da Màu, an online Vietnamese language literary magazine that promotes literature without borders. My fiction, essays, and translations have appeared in Unbroken Journal, NBCThink, NPR Books, Asymptote, Prairie Schooner, Rain Taxi, Pop Culture Nerd, diaCritics, Shelf Awareness, among others.
I was a Summer 2020 writer-in-residence at Woodlawn/Pope Leighey House; “Best of” short fiction writer at the 2020 Eckerd College’s Writers in Paradise Conference; finalist in The Asia Literary Review’s 2018 Essay Competition; non-fiction scholar at the 2017 Virginia Quarterly Review Writers’ Conference; 2017 and 2013 Jenny McKean Moore Community Workshop Fellow in Poetry and Short Fiction, respectively.
I have lived and worked in the Washington D.C. Metro Area since 1975, shortly after my family fled Saigon, South Vietnam, near the end of the Vietnam War.
