PLU Open Mic featuring Sonya Chung

June 9, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 11:55 pm

Hot summer nights of poetry, prose and performance art continue at Culture Rapide with a very special guest, Sonya Chung. She’s famous, but we’ll make you famous too: sign up starts at 20h and is free for all. Read, dance, give us a lecture: Paris is yours.

Sonya Chung is the author of the novels The Loved Ones (Relegation Books, 2016) and Long for This World (Scribner, 2010). She is a staff writer for the The Millions and founding editor of Bloom, and is a recipient of a Pushcart Prize nomination, the Charles Johnson Fiction Award, the Bronx Council on the Arts Writers’ Fellowship & Residency, and a MacDowell Colony Fellowship. Sonya’s stories, reviews, & essays have appeared in The Threepenny Review, Crab Orchard Review, Tin House, The Huffington Post, Sonora Review, The Late American Novel: Writers on the Future of Books, Short: An International Anthology, Conversations With James Salter, and BOMB Magazine, among others. Sonya has taught fiction writing at the Gotham Writers’ Workshop, NYU, the College of Mount St. Vincent, and Columbia University. Currently she lives in New York City and teaches at Skidmore College.
Sonya loves wandering urban streets, growing vegetables, Paris, bourbon, good TV, cigars, three-minute poached eggs, butter, boots, motorcycles, and kindness.  She is passionately DIY and prefers small living spaces to large ones. The book that made her want to be a writer was Annie Dillard’s A Pilgrim at Tinker Creek.
