Meet Our Readers: CP Chang

CP Chang is a writer and software consultant who has been drawn back to Chicago after having moved away from the city three different times in his adult life. There are always greener pastures elsewhere, but Chicago beckons him back.

While he thinks of himself as a fiction writer, he can be seen and heard telling nonfiction stories with 2nd Story at wine bars and other non-traditional theatrical venues around the city. Podcasts of his stories can be found at

His fiction and poetry have appeared in Hair Trigger, artisan, Upstairs at Duroc (via the Paris Writers Workshop), Atlanta Review, on, on, and in the anthologies My Angels and Demons at War, Open to Interpretation, and Chicago: An Immigrant City.

He was an Associate Producer for Elephant Rock Productions, which produced a series of educational videos on the art and business of writing. Check out for online clips and more information on these videos.

CP Chang received his M.F.A. in Fiction Writing from Columbia College of Chicago. He is steadfast in his avoidance of social networking, but only the electronic kind. He is blessed to be married to Jessica Young, a teacher, performer, and writer as well.
