In this episode, I'm chatting with Abbigail Nguyen Rosewood, a Vietnamese and American writer and author of If I Had Two Lives from Europa Editions and Constellations of Eve.
Abbigail holds an MFA in creative writing from Columbia University. After spending over 20 years in the U.S, she is now a reverse immigrant living in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
Constellations of Eve is the inaugural title forthcoming from DVAN/TTUP, a publishing imprint founded by Isabelle Thuy Pelaud, a scholar of Asian American history and literature, and Pulitzer winner Viet Thanh Nguyen to promote Vietnamese American literature.
She has written for TIME Magazine, Harper’s Bazaar, Salon, Cosmopolitan, Lit Hub, Electric Lit, Catapult, Pen America, and BOMB. In 2019, her hybrid writing was featured in a multimedia art and poetry exhibit at Eccles Gallery. Her fiction has been nominated for the Pushcart Prize, Best of the Net, and Best American Short Story 2020, and she was a finalist for the 49th New Millennium Writing Award. She won first place in the Writers Workshop of Asheville Literary Fiction contest.
She currently serves on the graduating thesis committee at Columbia University. She is the founder of Neon Door, an immersive art exhibit.
