“I use creative tools to uncover emotional truths that are difficult to face head-on. The stories that live within me and my lineage as a fourth-generation Japanese and Chinese Canadian aren’t always pretty, but writing can make them easier to share with others.”
I was recently interviewed in The Bulletin alongside author Hiromi Goto (my writing mentor!) about our intergenerational mentorship, writing as Japanese Canadians, and finding inspiration in quarantine.
Thank you to John Endo Greenaway for these thoughtful questions and for including us in this issue, which also features the Powell Street Festival 2020 program!
The interview is available here.
