About the Coach

Susanne Lee has lived in Hong Kong, Mount Pleasant, and Burgos. She was born in Los Angeles where her high school counselor told her she should attend the junior college across the street from her home. Not being good at listening to adults, she went to UC Berkeley and Harvard, instead. She was an international business girl in the World Trade Center, but her need to tell stories and wanderlust probably saved her life that September day.

Lee’s writing on diverse subjects such as Tiananmen dissident Ding Ziling, Spanish surrealism and sausage, mehndi in Delhi, and the Vietnamese Reunification Express has appeared in the Village Voice, The Nation, Konch, Giant Robot and SLAM. Her essay "The Sandy Diary of Susu Aisin Gioro" appears in the October Write Launch. Among her fiction, “Vol de Nuit” appears in PowWow: Short Fiction from Then to Now (DaCapo), and “Chungking Masala” was a runner-up in the Guardian Openings Contest. "Clomid Dreams" appears in the September Write Launch, and "Food Fire Storm" will appear in Broken Pencil next year.
