Jinwoo Chong and Manuel Gonzales join One Story

One Story is thrilled to announce two new additions to our team: Jinwoo Chong, our new Editorial Assistant, and Manuel Gonzales, our new Contributing Editor.

Jinwoo Chong is an MFA candidate for fiction at Columbia University. His work has appeared or is forthcoming in CRAFT, Salamander, Tahoma Literary Review, The Forge, No Contact, and others. He serves as fiction editor for Columbia Journal.

Manuel Gonzales is the author of The Miniature Wife and Other Stories (Riverhead, 2012), winner of the Sue Kaufmann Prize for First Fiction and the John Gardner Prize for Fiction, and the novel, The Regional Office is Under Attack! (Riverhead, 2016), winner of an Alex Award from the YALSA, and he remembers with great excitement, even fourteen years later, the day Hannah Tinti reached out to tell him the editors at One Story would like to publish his story. He currently teaches creative writing and literature at Bennington College and is a core faculty member of the Bennington Writing Seminars. 

Please join us in welcoming Jinwoo and Manuel to the One Story family!

Austin Bat Cave Kickstarter

Hey One Story readers! We’d like to spread the word about a Kickstarter project being spearheaded by Manuel Gonzales of One Story issue #66, “Pilot, Co-Pilot, Writer.” Gonzales is hoping to raise $25,000 to support Austin Bat Cave, an organization in Austin, Texas designed to enrich the lives of children through creative writing. This money will be used to maintain ABC’s presence in Austin schools where they run workshops and eventually publish the work of elementary, middle and high school students. Non-profit projects such as this are becoming increasingly important in today’s economic climate as budget cuts are felt everywhere, especially in the public school system.
