Emily Hoang


Emily Hoang is a Chinese Vietnamese writer and editor from San Francisco. She is a first generation college student who attended UC San Diego and attained a double major in General Biology and Literatures of the World. She received an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of San Francisco.

Her work has been published in or is forthcoming in GASHER Journal, The Baram House, Haunt Publishing, among others. Her story, “Inheritance”, was nominated for a Pushcart Prize and the PEN/Robert J. Dau Short Story Prize. She’s received support for her writing from Martha’s Vineyard Institute of Creative Writing, The Writers Grotto, and Storyknife Writers Retreat.

She is currently working on a short story collection that uses speculative and horror elements to explore the ways in which the various relationships in our lives and, ultimately, with ourselves, can support and fail us in our journey toward attaining our dreams. When she isn’t reading or writing, you can find her kickboxing, exploring new coffee shops, or trying to find the best breakfast sandwich in the city!
