Ash Huang is a writer, designer, and artist. Her speculative fiction examines themes such as our complicated relationship with social media and technology, inherited and intergenerational stories, nostalgia and misremembering, our shared and conflicting visions of place and home, and her particular slice of Chinese America. She has also written essays on equity in tech and design, as well as creativity and maintaining a creative practice. She works as a designer at Adobe, and is also a fine jewelry artist.
She’s currently working on a novel (which won the 2022 Diverse Worlds Grant), a collection of short stories, and tinkering with other creative projects. Keep in touch via her very occasional newsletter.
