Susan Nguyen hails from Virginia but currently lives and writes in Arizona. She earned her MFA in Poetry from Arizona State University, where she won the Aleida Rodriguez Memorial Prize and fellowships from the Virginia G. Piper Center for Creative Writing. In 2018, PBS NewsHour named her one of "three women poets to watch." Her work appears in diagram, Tin House, and elsewhere. She writes a lot about identity, the body and the Vietnamese diaspora, and also likes to make zines. Her debut collection, "Dear Diaspora," won the 2020 Prairie Schooner Book Prize in Poetry and was published by the University of Nebraska Press in September 2021.
