ABOUT ME

Hi and welcome. I'm Jules Chung. I'm a writer. I'm also one-half of the creative collective Unattended Bags. Unattended Bags were the spring 2021 fellows at the Icebox Residency with The Cabins Retreat.


My pronouns are she/her. I'm the daughter of immigrants from Korea, a wife, and a mother. I write fiction and poetry that's mainly about gender, families, and the joy and malaise of middle-class American life. This year, I was a finalist in the Pleiades Kinder-Crump contest for short fiction, judged by Matthew Salesses, and a finalist in the One Story Adina Talve-Goodman Fellowship competition. I'm working on a novel and a collection of stories. My favorite fall treat is whisky and candy corn. When I'm not writing, I'm taking my dog out, hanging out with my husband, and keeping in touch. I try to read and think about how to lift up other writers and artists who move me, especially Asian-American writers. Your support and interest mean the world. Thank you!--Jules
