Fiction writer K Ho attended through a fellowship with the University of Minnesota graduate writing program.

K Ho is a trans Chinese Canadian writer, whose work explores desire, loss, and embodiment through the lens of trans BIPOC subjectivity. Ho is interested in how language intersects with selfhood: how young trans BIPOC come into their identities through the process of self-articulation; how this process consists both of wonder and pain. In this moment of anti-trans rhetoric, Ho sees their work as a love letter to their community in recognition of our strength and survival amidst our horror and grief. Their writing resists portrayals of trans BIPOC as tragic or pristine, and aims to create nuanced, flawed, and life-affirming characters.

In addition to working on their manuscript Passage, K Ho lead a reading and discussion at Tinta Wita Tipi.
