Hi! I’m May, a writer based in Chicago and Hong Kong. I translate poetry and fiction from Chinese into English, write poems, and contribute prose and criticism to various places. I graduated from the University of Chicago with Honors in English and Comparative Literature in June 2019, and hope to keep doing what I’ve been doing for most of my life: growing as a writer.

On this blog, I’ll be writing about translation, books, and more! There will likely be an occasional post about Taylor Swift. I may share my morning oatmeal routine. And more… we’ll see!
