Ai Jiang—an aspiring author, writer, and blogger from Toronto, ON.
Ai Jiang arrived in Canada at four-years-old along with her parents after emigrating from Fujian, China. She graduated from the University of Toronto St. George with a degree in English Literature. Currently, she is working on her a novel project under her mentor at the Humber School for Writers and hopes to find a literary agent to represent her work upon its completion. She is also a Maudlin House columnist, Velvet Fields Magazine editor/writer, Strange Horizons First Reader, and Orca Literary Magazine reader.
As a Chinese-Canadian writer, she desires to write fiction pieces that are a mixture of both literary and speculative while incorporating aspects of her cultural background and motherland landscape whenever she can. When she has free time, she enjoys reading works of all genres but has a particular interest for the ones within the realms of dystopian/apocalyptic/post-apocalyptic, fantasy, sci-fi, and dark fiction.
You can usually find her hunched over her laptop either in the kitchen munching on snacks that she shouldn’t be eating or in her shared office drinking far too many bubble teas while insisting that watching movies and shows on Netflix as part of the “research”—active procrastination—for her writing.
