AAWW at AWP—Asian American Caucus

*This event is not held at the Workshop in NY*

What literary resources are available for Asian American writers? What does it mean to be an Asian writer in the 21st century? This first Asian American caucus is not a panel or a reading, but an open town-hall-style hang out and community space. If you’re an Asian American writer, come meet other Asian American writers and discuss fellowships, publication opportunities, and resources available for Asian American writers. Organized by the Asian American Writers’ Workshop, Kaya, and Kundiman.

Moderator:Ken Chen is the executive director of the Asian American Writers’ Workshop and a recipient of the Yale Series of Younger Poets Award for his poetry collection Juvenilia, which was selected by Louise Glück. He is one of the founders of CultureStrike, an arts organization dedicated to migrant justice.

Sunyoung Lee is the publisher and editor of Kaya Press, an independent, award-winning, nonprofit publisher of cutting-edge literature from the Asian and Pacific Islander diasporas. She has been with Kaya Press since 1994.

Cathy Linh Che is the author of Split, winner of the Norma Farber First Book Award and the Kundiman Poetry Prize. She received her MFA from New York University and is the recipient of fellowships from the Fine Arts Work Center at Provincetown, Hedgebrook, Poets & Writers, and Poets House.
