Henry Leung

Law student, poet and creative non-fiction writer

Henry W. Leung is the author of Goddess of Democracy, which was selected by Cathy Park Hong for the 2017 Omnidawn Prize and was a finalist for the 2018 PEN America Literary Awards, Los Angeles. The book was the result of a Fulbright year in Hong Kong during the Umbrella Movement, which led to Leung's pivot from literature toward a career in law. He is currently a J.D. candidate at Berkeley Law. He holds an M.F.A. from the University of Michigan, a B.A. from Stanford University, and fellowships from the Paul & Daisy Soros Fellowship for New Americans, the Luce Foundation in Translation, and the Salzburg Cutler Fellows Program in International Law.
