Long-Form Magazine Writing With The New Yorker’s Jiayang Fan

In this episode of the NüVoices Podcast, Alice Xin Liu and Joanna Chiu are live from New York! Following a heady and successful launch of NüVoices’ first North American chapter, they reunite at the SupChina offices in Brooklyn and interview one of their idols: Jiayang Fan, staff writer and de facto China correspondent at The New Yorker magazine.

Alice and Joanna interview Jiayang about her immigrant background, long-form magazine writing (especially her piece on Yan Lianke, “Forbidden Satires of China”), the impact of her male, white predecessors, and the field of Asian-American writing.

For recommendations and self-care, Alice recommends UC Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Center (which also produces this excellent podcast), Joanna recommends “How to Rock Your Broadcast Appearance” by Sophia Yan, published on NüVoices, and Jiayang recommends that women writers — and all writers — keep a nightly journal, or that we spend 15 minutes on the voice audio app on our phones “talking to ourselves.” Jiayang also recommends the Netflix show Kim’s Convenience.
