Dasom Yang

I am a writer and translator from South Korea. I hold a BA in literature from Ohio Wesleyan University and an MPhil in creative writing from Trinity College Dublin. I now work in PR in Berlin.

My essays, stories, poetry, and translations have been published in online and print journals in Ireland, Germany, and the U.S.. My essay "Ten Thousand Scherzos" was selected a finalist for The Iowa Review Contest for Nonfiction in 2018, and my essay "Memory Collage 1" was selected an honorary mention for The Kenyon Review Contest for Short Nonfiction in 2019. I have been granted a residency at Can Serrat Writers Residency.

I was the nonfiction editor for SAND, an independent literary journal published out of Berlin, as well as an editorial assistant for The Willowherb Review, a journal for nature writing by writers of color.

I am working on my first book, a collection of essays on memory, migration, language and love.
