Anni Liu is a writer, translator, and editor from the Chinese Northwest and the Midwestern United States. Her poems and translations are published or forthcoming in The Georgia Review, Two Lines, Pleaides, and Quarterly West, among others. She is currently working on a long essay about being an alien and learning how to walk on lakes.
This April, to recognize and honor National Poetry Month, we curated a folio of poems by four Asian American Undocupoets Fellows. This page features Anni Liu's "Misapprehension" and "Finding Fruit." We invite you to take a moment to read the other poems in this collection here.
