Writing


In addition to working as an editor and translator, I also write fiction. My work has been shortlisted for several prizes, including the 2011 Dundee International Book Prize as well as the Fish Short Story Prize and the Half and One Prize. My short story "Take Care" was a finalist for the 2019 Curt Johnson Prose Award in Fiction, and my story "Chop Chop" was a finalist for the 2019 Craft Short Fiction Prize.
