About Me

I’m Grace Kwan, a writer, editor, and researcher based in Vancouver. I use the pronouns she/her and they/them.

I’m a Sociology MA student at Simon Fraser University. I studied Sociology and Professional Writing & Communication at the University of Toronto. My graduate research undertakes precariousness in Canadian migrant labour with a feminist and antiracist focus.

I research and write about sociopolitical issues through the lenses of gender, race, and nationhood. My writing (articles and personal essays on race, media, and culture) can be read on various online publications or on my blog. I’m also a regular contributor for Camp Thirlby, the sister site of The Thirlby.

I published a collection of creative nonfiction stories, Prelude (& Other Stories), with Life Rattle Press. My speculative short fiction and prose poetry have appeared in multiple anthologies and magazines from 2011 to the present.
