Nicholas Chung, Mrigaa Sethi and Kaori Suzuki

Co-sponsored by Kundiman


Continuing our support for emerging writers, we are excited to present a showcase of poets and fiction writers from our workshops, with Nicholas Chung, Ilisa Lam, Mrigaa Sethi, Antonius Wiriajada and Helena Zhang. See them here first before they get too hot to touch!
Nicholas Chung lives in a small room but won’t use big words.

When she is not writing poetry Ilisa Lam writes about technology, space and weapons as cultural anthropological phenomena, the subject of her doctoral dissertation at CUNY Graduate Center. Ilisa regrets being unable to attend the reading. Her work will be read by Kaori Suzuki.

Mrigaa Sethi enjoys feeding young people a little more than actually teaching them. For grown-ups, she throws raucous parties and, in the mornings-after, she counts syllables at the breakfast table.

Antonius Wiriadjaja was born in Jakarta and raised in Boston. He received a BA from Hampshire College, where he absorbed the taxonomy of environmentally friendly household products from his eco-conscious peers. His interests include neurons, literature and public nudity.

Helena Zhang is a person. She has lived in many houses.

$5 donation is suggested.
