writer, artist & educator
Y-Bình Nguyễn (she/they) writes about transgenerational trauma & healing, critical compassion, queer coming of age love stories, diaspora hustles and bustles, eco-resistance sci-fi, and visionary fiction.
Y-Bình Nguyễn (she/they) is a proud daughter to American War in Vietnam refugees, descendent from a rural farming community in An Giang, Việt Nam, and situated in Lawrence, Massachusetts. She is currently the Literary Curator & Program Director at El Taller and Co-Founder & Literary Editor at Exposed Brick Literary Magazine.
Y-Binh’s poetry and prose focuses on the poignant themes of transgenerational trauma & healing, critical compassion, queer coming of age love stories, diaspora hustles and bustles, eco-resistance sci-fi, and visionary fiction. As a passionate educator with a praxis of communal learning, one of Y-Binh’s favorite places in the world to teach and learn is Mamelodi, South Africa. On sunny days, you can find her relearning how to grow food, immersed in works by creatives of color, and figuring out how to be the best role model for her younger sisters (Bảo Trân and pup Nieves).
