Workshop Leader & Panelist: Joan He

Joan He

Joan He was born and raised in Philadelphia but still will, on occasion, lose her way. At a young age, she received classical instruction in oil painting before discovering that stories were her favorite kind of art. She studied psychology and Chinese history at the University of Pennsylvania and currently writes from a desk overlooking the city waterfront. Descendant of the Crane is her young adult debut.

Joan will be leading writing workshops at both Ch1Con and Ch21Con, as well as speaking on the conferences’ combined “ask anything” panel.
