LA-based poet and publisher Chiwan Choi, whose latest collection is The Yellow House (Civil Coping Mechanisms, 2017), was born in Seoul, Korea. His family immigrated to Paraguay, then to the US when he was five. He is a cofounder of Writ Large Press, which organizes literary and cultural gatherings, most recently producing "90 for 90"-- 90 events at different venues across the LA area over 90 consecutive days. His work engages themes of community, racism, exile, and family, which he discusses in this Poetry.LA interview hosted by Mariano Zaro. Choi's other collections include The Flood (Tia Chucha Press, 2010) and Abductions (Writ Large Press, 2012). His columns have appeared in Cultural Weekly. Choi earned an MFA at New York University.
