About

Yvonne Spring Yu

In the grand expanse of fiction, I'm continuously learning to write. The Providence literary arts community has been invaluable in that process.

My short work aims to challenge traditional ideas of form and plot, working in the visceral and intimate. I want to make foreign things familiar, so that you can hold them in your hands.

I'm grateful to always have more to learn, more edits to make, and more boundaries to push beyond.
