Asian American Writers' Workshop

Asian American Writers' Workshop Asian American stories deserve to be told!
(35)

The Asian American Writers’ Workshop is the preeminent national literary arts nonprofit dedicated to the belief that Asian American stories deserve to be told. We’ve garnered coverage from the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Huffington Post, Associated Press, Atlantic, Slate and NPR. Invited to the White House, named one of the top Asian American groups nationally, we seek to invent the future of Asian American intellectual culture. Check us out at http://www.aaww.org. 1. WE CURATE UNFORGETTABLE ART EVENTS. We hold fifty events a year at our Chelsea space. They’re fresh, progressive, funny, interdisciplinary, and community-based. We have curated events with Salman Rushdie, Jhumpa Lahiri, Michael Ondaatje, Zadie Smith, Maxine Hong Kingston, Ha Jin, Das Racist, Eddie Huang, Tea Obreht, Junot Díaz, Roxane Gay, and other writers, activists, and scholars. 2. WE PUBLISH THE ONLINE MAGAZINES THE MARGINS AND OPEN CITY. The Margins magazine (aaww.org) seeks to invent the future of Asian American arts and ideas and imagine ethnic identity as counterculture, both aesthetically and politically. We have published Pulitzer Finalist Chang-rae Lee, National Book Award Finalist Jessica Hagedorn, and MacArthur Genius Vijay Iyer. Open City magazine (opencitymag.com) publishes stories about communities of color, those excluded from traditional power structures, and incubates the underprivileged writers who can write about them. Almost a third of a million readers have read our magazines. 3. WE INCUBATE EMERGING WRITERS OF COLOR. We give out grants to eight emerging Asian American writers a year. We hold open mics, writing workshops, and a big publishing conference. As Pulitzer Prize-winner Jhumpa Lahiri, arguably the most celebrated novelist in America, said at our 2009 PAGE TURNER literary festival: “I felt that AAWW was a secret door that opened and cared about and supported my work as a writer.”

"I think about how the majority of those deployed on the front lines—agricultural laborers, grocery and food delivery workers, nurses, and healthcare professionals—are people of color and immigrants, many of whom are now being called viruses and told to return from where they came.

And I remember that this is nothing new. Filipinos have been fighting America’s wars for over a century, from the Pacific theater of World War II, to its wars in Korea and Vietnam, to AIDS in the 1980s (my mother among the recruits for the front lines then), to Covid-19 in the present. We are welcomed and valued in this country for our economic utility and are expendable when there no longer is a need for us."

As an organization dedicated to the empowerment and amplification of marginalized voices, the Asian American Writers' Workshop recognizes that silence is not an option.

“What makes a great writer? What makes a great rebel? Someone who listens. Someone who listens more than he or she talks. Someone who goes to find where the silence is and tries to understand…

Our Home and the World: Poetry for Laal NYC

Our Home and the World: Poetry for Laal NYC with Nadia Q. Ahmad, Tarfia Faizullah, and Samira Sadeque

Join the Asian American Writers’ Workshop for a virtual reading and fundraiser for Laal NYC, featuring Nadia Q. Ahmad, Tarfia Faizullah, and Samira Sadeque. These accomplished journalists and poets celebrate Bengali culture in NYC, explore immigration, gender, mental health, hate speech and find the poetic junctures where “brutality, desire and beauty combine.” We are honored to welcome them to our virtual stage alongside grassroots organization Laal NYC.

Laal NYC provides resources to Bengali women in the Bronx so that they can live healthy, engaged and joyful lives. Laal provides Bengali women in the community with a safe space where they can practice literacy and conversational skills as well as learn about health and wellness. Many of Laal’s community members have lost their jobs, are hospitalized, or are taking care of sick parents or grandparents, and are struggling to keep on top of their expenses.

In response to Covid-19, LAAL is partnering with Local Zakat, a collective that helps those at home, to create an emergency fund for those who need support with bills, medical expenses, groceries or any other covid-19 related expenses. Two-thirds of the proceeds will support our emergency fund. One-third of all proceeds will support the implementation of Laal’s Fall programs which include workshops on literacy, mental health, and nutrition for women.

The Kingdom That Drips in Gold

"After Pananadem’s opening scene of refugeedom in the aftermath of the 2017 siege of Marawi, the play jumps back in time to President Ferdinand Marcos’ U.S.-backed military dictatorship of the 1970s. A Maranao child has a message sewn into her dress that she must deliver to a neighboring village. In a harrowing sequence, she is pursued by soldiers and eventually taken captive, bound and blindfolded.

'That was based on memories from my mother. During Marcos’ time, raids were happening on a regular basis,' says Malaika, who in recent years has assumed a more active leadership role in Kinding Sindaw’s productions. If you were an adult traveling past curfew under martial law, you were assumed to be a rebel, so children were often tasked with running communiqués between villages."

Caught: An Experience with Coronavirus

"That evening, I couldn’t taste my dinner. What was happening? When I sipped my lentil soup, I could tell it was salty and when I bit into a chocolate bar, I detected the sweetness, but the flavors of the soup and chocolate were…not there. Because of this, I realized I couldn’t really smell anything. I inhaled as I held items to my nose: an orange, my bath soap, a floral facial lotion. The fragrance, the odors were barely or not at all detectable.

"As if to answer my question and in sync with my transpiring symptoms, my sister texted me a link to a recent New York Times article about something called anosmia, the loss of the sense of smell and taste. It had been identified as a possible symptom of the coronavirus.

“'This is what I have!' I yelled at my sister through text. This confirmed what I already knew: I had the virus."

New episode of AAWW Radio!

This is the second episode of our podcast series diving back into our 2016 Publishing Conference, which we held at Issue Project Room in Brooklyn.

Keeping the Faith: Mass without the masses

"In the weeks leading up to the COVID-19 outbreak in New York City, Father Patrick Longalong found himself caught in the middle of conflicting opinions among his churchgoers.

'It was a divided community,' he said of his Catholic parish in Queens. 'There were people—actually our Asian parishioners—who understood how serious it was. But others would often ask, ‘Do you really not have enough faith in God that you’re going to cancel Mass?''"

Keeping the Faith: Mosques Struggle in the Wake of Coronavirus

"Over the past week, Nazrul Islam has been attending services daily. More so than he normally would.

"'We come here to relax, to be with God and to spend time with each other,' he said. 'Outside there is no work... At least in the mosque we have some peace.'

"Among a rapidly changing world fraught with financial insecurity, the mosque has served as a last bastion of refuge and tranquility. Yet, with the citywide ban on gatherings of more than 50 and a decline in worshippers, small mosques are unsure for how long they can hold out."

How does our sexuality shift through age, generations, and cultural progression?
How do we as a community and as individuals explore and express our sexual identities with authenticity and empowerment?

Join us for a special night of readings and discussion to launch a new folio in the Transpacific Literary Project: Insurgent Tongues.

Finding Home, Somewhere on the Brink of War

"On January 3, the day Alikhani flew to Tehran from JFK Airport to visit her parents, President Trump ordered the assassination of the second most powerful figure in Iran. Previously unknown to many Americans, Qassim Suleimani was viewed by U.S. intelligence as the mastermind behind militia proxies across the region. He was, purportedly, the U.S. government’s greatest adversary in the Middle East.

"Moments after Suleimani’s death was announced, (Nasim) Alikhani, who is the chef behind the acclaimed Brooklyn restaurant Sofreh, boarded her flight to Tehran. 'My husband dropped me off [at the airport], and he contacted me two minutes later…He heard on NPR in the car . He said, 'Listen, you have time not to go and you have insurance [to not lose your] ticket.’'"

มันทำร้ายเราได้แค่นี้แหละ || All They Could Do To Us (an excerpt)

Honored to have @Prontip Mankhong's prison memoirs in the Insurgent Tongues folio today.

All They Could Do To Us was one of the most talked about books in Thai literary circles last year and translator @Tyrell Haberkorn is now carrying it into English. ***Come listen to Tyrell read at AAWW in NYC on Feb. 13, check our event listings for details***

After the 22 May 2014 coup, Prontip was accused of lèse majesté and spent over two years in Bangkok's Central Women’s Prison. Prontip writes a first person plural account of the labyrinthine prison regulations and procedures, as well the intimate sisterhoods forged with other inmates across class and age.

"The book is proof that a person who is steadfast in herself and pours constant energy into creating light cannot accept merely being a ‘victim,’ even when she herself falls into darkness."—Ida Aroonwong, publisher, ReadJournal

Hi group, I am a Dalit-Indian writer living in Hollywood. I am hosting an event "Engaged Ambedkarism and Dalit Stories being told by Dalits" in Glendale, CA on Sunday, 12/8. Apart from personal stories by Dalit attendees, it also features a table read of my feature script "Rachel and Siddhartha". I can use some help with reaching Indian Americans, and others who you think might be interested in attending this event. Any help with outreach is much appreciated. Not often is there a dedicated space for oppressed communities like the Dalits and I would like to make this a success, and pave way for sustainable events like this. Appreciate your support and help with this. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/engaged-ambedkarism-and-dalit-stories-told-by-dalits-indian-untouchables-tickets-79268063913 Rachel and Siddhartha: Feature Script (Romantic Comedy) LogLine: Age old customs and personal prejudices come to light in this poignant comedy, when a young Indian untouchable living in America realizes that the beautiful Caucasian girl he has fallen for is an Indian Brahmin, on her own mission to impress, and win the approval of her dad and step-mom.

These guidance are didactic that tell mankind about their self. As well as about what’s around them. The guidance lines exist with us as basic facts of life. Like there are nine planets in the solar system and it take nine months for a child to develop in the womb and then birth. The moon revolve around the earth every 27 days. Woman have there menstruation every 27 days. There are 4 seasons in one year; spring, summer, fall, and winter. The woman goes through 4 stages in her life. Puberty, pregnancy, menopause and death. The feeling of zero gravity in space is equivalent to swimming in water. The big bang theory is when the sun was made, the planets and universe also stars. The mind when it is made (educated); makes houses, building, cars things. Mankind body is made of solid, liquids and gases. The universe is made of solid, liquids and gases. The earth is made up of 75% of water and 25% land (solid). Man physical structure is 75% water and 25% solid. These guidance lines the supreme being left mankind, guide them into knowing existence.
