MEIKKO LEE is a first year graduate student at Mills College in Oakland majoring in creative writing.
I have called into question my position as a writer in the current frames of societal pressures.
What does it mean to really dig deep and find your own truth—and then not be afraid to share it with the rest of the world?
My essay in the 34thParallel Magazine Issue 53
aims to highlight my experience of what it means to fall in love with my experience and my writing—and hopefully the passion that others feel behind the joys of writing as well.
I am a Writing Fellow at Mills and director of a nonprofit organization in Berkeley. I am currently working with my school’s literary magazine, 580 Split, and I am looking to become involved with publishing on a much larger scale.
