with Linda Russo
Small Press Traffic Reading Series
Timken Lecture Hall, San Francisco campus
Info for direcitons:

(they're allowing me to play a mix CD before the reading starts.)

Sunday, October 21, 3 p.m.
Asian American Poetry Now
UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive
2626 Bancroft Way / 510.642.0808

The Sunday reading is curated by the fearsome poet/critic Chris Chen and features an extremely talented roster of poets. Here's how they describe it:

How are young Asian American poets grappling with some of the issues that have engaged the artists featured in One Way or Another? Eight West Coast- and New York-based Asian American poets, from the same generation as the exhibition artists and with a comparable range of cultural backgrounds, will read from work that parallels the "post-identity" premise of One Way or Another. Their poetry displays a range of exciting experimental styles that depart from the focus on identity politics that has marked the work of many Asian American poets since the 1960s. Poet and UC Berkeley Ph.D. candidate Chris Chen, whose dissertation explores experimental currents within contemporary Asian American and African American poetry, will introduce and moderate the program. Featured poets are Barbara Jane Reyes, Tsering Wangmo Dhompa, Cathy Park Hong, Paolo Javier, David Lau, Eileen Tabios, and Truong Tran. A reception will follow the program.

Dear Ms. Hong:

I am the Editor-in-Chief of Kartika Review, a literary journal that publishes Asian American creative writing. While scouting for talent, I came across your website and am excited about the possibility of your contributions to our journal.

We publish both writings by established writers whose work in our journal can serve as inspiration for a younger generation of writers to pursue their craft and we publish fresh voices from our community who display remarkable talent and potential.

Your writing would serve as a great example of literary talent from our community that could further inspire younger APAs to pursue creative writing.

We seek fiction, poetry, narrative essays, or book reviews. Please contact me at for more information. We would deeply appreciate your contribution of unpublished work. Our inaugural issue is scheduled for release in late November or early December of this year. Although that issue will be a downloadable PDF e-Journal file from our website, we will be publishing a print issue every year that anthologizes the best submissions we received that year. All contributors to the print issue would receive complimentary copies of it.

Please let me know if you would be interested in supporting us.

Thank you.

- Sunny

Ms. Hong,

A downloadable PDF file! How fantastic! Gone are the days when we published in journals that no body reads but NOW we get to publish in journals nobody prints! Speaking of which, your honorarium and complimentary copies of FIELD magazine came to my office by some kind of postal serendipity. Please email me a forwarding address.
