SUN-jun-ah SUH-thee-an [or see: handy Bollywood song for ref]


I am a 2019 graduate of the Iowa Writers' Workshop, and an alumna of the Clarion Writers’ Workshop.

My stories have been published or are forthcoming in Boulevard, Salt Hill, Joyland, and the Master’s Review. I have been first runner-up for the Boulevard Emerging Writers' Short Fiction Prize, finalist for the Narrative Story Contest, and finalist for the Master’s Review Story Contest, judged by Aimee Bender.

I’ve worked as a tech journalist in San Francisco and a foreign correspondent in Mumbai. My reporting from India was honored by the South Asian Journalists' Association. I was a 2017 Paul and Daisy Soros Fellow

For now, I live in the cornfields.
