Brian Leung

Brian Leung was born and raised in San Diego County --- a somewhat unlikely location, given that his mother was born in Battleground, Washington, and his father escaped from China in 1949.  For many years, Brian lived in Los Angeles, where he studied the city's kinetic diversity and found his literary voice. In addition, he has lived in Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, and Washington, regions of the country which also appear in his fiction.

Since 2000, Brian has taught in Cincinnati and Los Angeles, and now in Louisville, where he is an Associate Professor at the University of Louisville.

Brian’s fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry have appeared in Story, Crazyhorse, Grain, Gulf Coast, Kinesis, The Barcelona Review, Mid-American Review, Salt Hill, Gulf Stream, River City, Runes, The Bellingham Review, Hyphen, Velocity, The Connecticut Review, Blithe House Quarterly, Indiana Review, Crab Orchard Review, Crowd, and in the short story anthology The Habit of Art. He is also the coauthor of the nonfiction humor title Not Another Feel Good Singles Book.

The recipient of numerous awards and fellowships, Brian earned his B.A. and M.A. at California State University, and an M.F.A from Indiana University.
