A bit about this blog: Thank you for visiting. If you have a moment and would like to know more about this blog and my writing, please consider clicking here to read my interview by The Woolf (June 2018).
A bit about me: In very short, I was born and raised in New England, studied and taught in many places before immigrating from China to Switzerland in 1996 where I remain with my husband, a watchmaker, and two grown children. I founded and chair The Pernessy Poets in Lausanne, am on the steering committee of the Geneva Writers’ Group Conferences, and work as a freelance English teacher and translator (FR-EN).
Some writing cred: My writing and poems have appeared, or are forthcoming, in Crab Orchard Review, Necessary Fiction, Rock & Sling, Offshoots, Everyday Haiku: An Anthology, The Society of Classical Poets, various magazines and newspapers including the New York Times, South China Morning Post, Talesmag, and 24heures. Naomi Shihab Nye chose my poem, Said Unsaid, for a Geneva Writers’ Group Literary Prize in 2017, and my work has been featured by National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo).
