"Choi Jeong Min"

"I promise: I will never stop stealing back what is mine."

“Franny Choi wields words like muthaf*ckin machetes.”

— Angry Asian Man


“Franny Choi names and praises loss with striking wit and candor;

nothing stays gone. Her poems dare us all to live, live, live.

 — Rachel McKibbens


“She creates a language that plays, mutates, borrows, defiles, and never

for a moment becomes too serious that it can’t laugh at itself.”

— Renee Gladman


“Since 2011, I have been tired of Franny Choi.”

— Casey Rocheteau
