In Conversation with Nancy Huang | Writer In-residence 2024

A little while ago we had the great pleasure of sitting down with our current Writer in-residence, Nancy Huang!

Along her wall are notes that she puts up to help her track points in the novel she’s working on, a modern queer retelling of the story of the goddess Chang’e. Nancy who’s background is in poetry, provides insights into the differences of writing a novel and poems.
