Heart Radical: A Mixed-Race Chinese American Woman’s Journey

Online event

Race, language, gender, family, spirituality—we each have different layers to our identity that shape us, we are each made up of many parts and influences. Writer Anne Liu Kellor shares her search for belonging and her journey throughout China.

Magazine, Longreads, Fourth Genre, Witness, New England Review, Entropy, The Normal School, Vela Magazine, Los Angeles Review, Literary Mama, and many more. She is the recipient of fellowships from Hedgebrook, Seventh Wave, Jack Straw Writers Program, 4Culture, and Hypatia-in-the-Woods. Anne teaches writing workshops and leads writing retreats across the Pacific Northwest. She also facilitates a year-long creative nonfiction manuscript program for women and nonbinary writers seeking mentorship and community. She especially loves supporting writers of color.
