Thao Votang is a writer based in Austin, Texas. Her work has been published in Salon, Sightlines, Southwest Contemporary, Still: The Journal, and Lucky Jefferson. She co-edited Conflict of Interest, an arts & lit publication, and co-founded the Tiny Park arts space. When she’s not looking at art, she can be found reading one of the many books she has put in her bag or hidden under that couch cushion. Her fiction is informed by her experience as part of the Vietnamese diaspora deep in the lone star state, her interest in how we love our mothers, and the impending climate catastrophe.
Thao is represented by Amanda Orozco at Transatlantic Agency.
