Kim Liao’s creative nonfiction, fiction, and criticism have appeared in The New York Times, Catapult, Salon, The Rumpus, Lit Hub, McSweeney’s, The Millions, River Teeth, Vol. 1 Brooklyn, Fourth River, Hippocampus, Fringe Magazine, and others. A former Fulbright Creative Writing Research Scholar in Taiwan, she has received writing grants from Harvard and Stanford universities. Her 2016 essay in Lit Hub about collecting 100 rejections a year went viral–starting the #100rejections challenge–and led to her being dubbed a “Rejection Expert,” a title she wears with a healthy dose of irony. She is a Writing Lecturer at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, and is currently seeking a publisher for her hybrid family memoir about the Taiwanese Independence Movement.
