Kayla Min Andrews grew up in New Hampshire, majored in English at Amherst College, taught English in France, then moved to New Orleans, where she assisted death penalty defense investigators, waited tables, and got an interdisciplinary Masters in Latin American Studies at Tulane University. She now teaches English as a second or other language to international students at the University of New Orleans. Her mother was a celebrated fiction writer who died one year before COVID hit. Kayla is working on a collection of autobiographical short stories inspired by her relationship with her mother over time, both before and after her death. 

The Katherine Min Fellowship at MacDowell

My mother was a novelist, short story writer, and essayist.

We set up a fellowship at MacDowell in her name.

I’ll be reading some of her work on June 1st at an event celebrating the fellowship — with Alexander Chee, Jessica Shi, and Lisa Ko.
