Lilian Min is a culture writer, a feminist, a proud USC and marching band alum, and a decent improvisational cook.
She has perfect pitch and can best sum up her personal style as “candy witch.” She’s on Twitter and Tumblr as @llnmn.

Person who inspires me the most:
What made me want to become a writer:
We had to keep these journals in the 6th grade called “life books.” My friend and I would “compete” against each other to see who could fill up the most by the end of the year. It was a dumb contest, but it lit the fire. In case you were wondering, I won.
Music I listen to when I write:
Enya, Hot Sugar, instrumentals of albums that weren’t originally instrumentals, really long playlists of really sad songs.
Fave place to work:
Anywhere with an outlet and enough coverage that I can hide my screen from random passersby.
Writers I look up to:
Margaret Atwood, Jenny Zhang, Brian K. Vaughan, Matt Fraction, Zadie Smith, Ayesha Siddiqi, Nicole S. Chung, Jia Tolentino, Doreen St. Felix, Arabelle Sicardi, Alana Massey, Haruki Murakami… sometimes.
Favorite GIF ever:
