Lit Crawl San Francisco has ended

Jenny Qi

San Francisco, California
My debut poetry collection Focal Point was selected by Dustin Pearson as the winner of the 2020 Steel Toe Books Poetry Award. My essays and poems have been published widely in newspapers and literary journals, including The New York Times, The Atlantic, Tin House, Rattle, ZYZZYVA, and the San Francisco Chronicle, and I've received fellowships from Tin House, Omnidawn, Kearny Street Workshop, and the San Francisco Writers Grotto. At the end of graduate school, I co-founded and produced the science storytelling podcast Bone Lab Radio, where I wrote and talked a lot about death. Born in Pennsylvania to Chinese immigrants, I grew up mostly in Las Vegas and Nashville and now live in San Francisco, where I completed my Ph.D. in Cancer Biology and currently work in oncology consulting. I'm working on more essays and poems and translating my late mother’s memoirs of the Chinese Cultural Revolution and immigration to the U.S.
