Visiting Writer Series / Writer’s Story: Sejal Shah

Prose writer and PLU Rainier Writing Workshop faculty member Sejal Shah will be the first writer in PLU’s 2020-21 Visiting Writer Series. See her bio at RWW’s site and also at her website. Shah’s debut essay collection, This Is One Way to Dance, was published by University of Georgia Press in June 2020 to much acclaim. Publishers Weekly noted: “The poetic, probing debut from short story writer and essayist Shah forcefully tackles the complicated intersection of identity, language, movement, family, place, and race.” The book received glowing reviews from the Los Angeles Review and NPR, among others, and was named a “most anticipated book” by many outlets, including Bitch MediaThe Rumpus, and The Millions.
