Stephanie Chang (she/they) is a Chinese Canadian poet, editor, and gap year student from Vancouver, BC.
She is the author of Night Market in Technicolor, a chapbook described by as Alycia Pirmohamed as "bustling: active in the same way; it vibrates, it is full of image and song, of history, of these alluring and clearly focused adolescent scenes that ripple compellingly into personal revelation." Her poetry appears in The Blue Mesa Review, Adroit Journal, Kenyon Review, Berkeley Poetry Review, Diode Poetry Journal, Penn Review, Waxwing, and Hobart, among others.
They are the runner-up of the 2020 Adroit Prize for Poetry, judged by Pulitzer Prize winner and critically-acclaimed writer, Jericho Brown. Additionally, they have been recognized by the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers, Hollins University, Poetry Society of the United Kingdom, Anthony Quinn Foundation, and League of Canadian Poets. Their poems were nominated for the Pushcart Prize and Best New Poets anthology, and they previously attended the 2019 Kenyon Young Writers Workshop and 2018 Adroit Summer Mentorship Program under Victoria Chang.
Currently, Stephanie reads for Muzzle Magazine and edits for Sine Theta Magazine, a literary arts print magazine by and for the Sino diaspora. When not writing, she enjoys listening to Mitski and drinking matcha lattes.
