The  Complete and thorough bio-bibliography of the SFWUK member writers

Jae eun Chung (정재은)

Jae eun Chung decided to write one day while floating on a swan boat at a city park in Boston. The work, "Avatar School" (아바타 학교), won the Science Technology Creative Literature Award in Children's Literature category in 2005, marking her debut as a SF children's story writer. Before then, she studied atmospheric science and philosophy of science.

Her stories are based on an imaginary world where science and medical technology are highly developed. Her main characters are usually young, and the story expresses their sense of identity and emotions through their happiness, sadness, confusion, conflict, stability, and instability. She wishes that all readers, not only children, expand their logical and emotional imagination through the unprejudiced perception and proactive experiences of the main characters who stumble through a new world. Her short stories that resonate in the minds of readers across all age brackets were published in local literary journals and children's literary journals. As a children's and young adult book writer, she is also continuously working on remembering the catastrophic sinking of the Sewol Ferry.

She is publishing "Imagining with Science" (과학으로 상상하기), a cross between fiction and nonfiction, in installments in the monthly journal Children and Literature. The first installment was published in June 2017 and the series runs for a year.
