As a Canadian writer and educator, my work is a cobbling together of poetry, mentoring, teaching, and advocating for BIPOC voices. A first generation Chinese-Canadian, I was born in Ottawa, the traditional territory of the Algonquin Anishinaabe. I graduated with a B.A. in Honours English at York University and a M.A. in English and Creative Writing at the University of Toronto. Admission Requirements, my first collection of poetry, was published with McClelland and Stewart in 2017 and was shortlisted for the Gerald Lambert Memorial Award, the Pat Lowther Memorial Award, and nominated for the Trillium Book Award. My second collection, Waking Occupations, appeared in Spring 2022 with McClelland and Stewart. My fiction and nonfiction has appeared in Brick Magazine, The Globe and Mail, The New Quarterly, What the Poets are Doing: Canadian Poets in Conversation, Refuse: CanLit in Ruins, and The Unpublished City, shortlisted for a Toronto Book Award. I co-edited The Unpublished City: Volume II, The Lived City. I am a mentor with Diaspora Dialogues and the University of Toronto Creative Writing MA program. From 2021-2022 I served as Writer-In-Residence at the University of New Brunswick. Currently I am on the poetry editorial board with The Fiddlehead magazine and Brick Books, work with the organization Poetry In Voice, and as a Writing and Learning Consultant for ELL students at OCAD University, where I have also been a sessional instructor in Creative Writing.
