I’m a Filipino-British writer. I’ve been on the mentee (AWP Writer-to-Writer) and mentor (DV Mentor) side, so have experience of both and all their joys and challenges! I am a 2021 Desert Nights, Rising Stars Fellow at the Virginia G. Piper Center for Creative Writing in Tempe, Arizona, and a Finalist in the William Faulkner-William Wisdom Creative Writing Competition.My writing has received support from the Vermont Studio Center, Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, Cill Rialaig, Ireland, Norton Island Residency, Maine, Faber Llull Residency, Spain, Historic Joy Kogawa House, Vancouver, Hambidge, InCahoots, and Sundress Academy of the Arts. “The Party”, a short story about Vita Sackville-West, was performed at the Tara Arts Theatre, London. I’ve received fellowships and/or scholarships from Squaw Valley Community of Writers, Aspen Summer Words, Colgate Writers’ Conference, Napa Valley Writers’ Conference, Loft Literary, Key West Literary Seminar, and the Arvon Foundation. I’m passionate about writing fiction that challenges how we view history.
