Why subscribe?

Subscribe to get full access to the monthly newsletter. I will compile all of my best articles and poems published that month and top it all off with an original piece.

My writing tends to discuss, in no particular order: writing, art, surgery, medicine, food, being Chinese, being a doctor, being a human, and cats.

One day, you will get this in your Inbox and you will be the first to know when I have published a chapbook/novel/NYT bestseller/Pulitzer Prize-winner.

Stay up-to-date

You won’t have to worry about missing anything. Every new edition of the newsletter goes directly to your inbox.
