His work has appeared in the Southern Indiana Review, Guernica, Ninth Letter, Devil's Lake, Bat City Review, the Paris-American, and elsewhere. Hieu is the author of This Way to the Sugar (Write Bloody Press, 2014), which was a finalist for both a Minnesota Book Award and a Lambda Literary Award. His newest collection, Not Here, was recently released via Coffee House Press in April of 2018.
