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 2nd Asian American caucus is not a panel or a reading, but an open town-hall-style hang out and community space. 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, Asian American Literary Review, and Kundiman.

Jyothi Natarajan is the Managing Editor at the Asian American Writers’ Workshop where she edits the Margins, an arts and ideas magazine featuring the work of Asian American writers, artists, and thinkers. She was previously an editor at the Caravan magazine, and prior to that worked in book publishing.

Dr. Lawrence-Minh Bùi Davis is founding director of the arts nonprofit The Asian American Literary Review and coeditor-in-chief of its critically acclaimed literary journal. He is also a curator with the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center and adjunct faculty for the University of Maryland.

Sunyoung Lee is the publisher of award-winning literary nonprofit Kaya Press, where she has worked for the past twenty-two years.

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.
