S. Isabel Choi J.D. ’02 is one of 35 writers selected to receive a 2024 literature fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts. After practicing litigation at Hanson Bridgett LLP and teaching at the University of San Francisco School of Law, Isabel pivoted to creative writing. She is finishing a generational memoir on the legacy of loss and illness, inspired by the story of her grandfather, the chief justice of South Korea’s Supreme Court from 1981 to 1986. An excerpt from this project was long-listed for the de Groot Foundation’s First Pages Prize. Other distinctions include a Best American Essays Notable Mention and nominations for the Pushcart Prize. She is represented by CAA.
