Living Writers presents Ling Ma. This event is free and open to the public.

Ling Ma is the author of the critically acclaimed debut novel Severance, described as a “meticulous, caustic description of life in big cities and what happens when a terrible pandemic slowly annihilates most of the human population.” Severance won the Kirkus Prize for Fiction, the NYPL Young Lions Fiction Award, and the VCU Cabell First Novelist Award. It was also a New York Times Notable Book and an NPR Best Book of 2018. Ms. Ma’s second book, a story collection titled Bliss Montage, comes out this month. Born in Sanming, China, Ms. Ma grew up in Utah and Kansas and earned an MFA from Cornell University. She lives in Chicago.

If you cannot join us in person and would like to attend via Zoom, registration is required.  Register for Living Writers 9/8

Living Writers is hosted by the English Department with generous support from the Olive B. O'Connor Fund and the Offices of the Dean of the Faculty and the President. A signature program of Colgate University since 1980, Living Writers is a master class in how works of literature come to be.
