I am very excited to announce Achiote Press’ newest chapbook: Here is a Pen: An Anthology of West Coast Kundiman Poets, edited by Ching-in Chen, Margaret Rhee, and Debbie Yee.
As many of you know, Kundiman is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to providing a nurturing space for Asian American poets. Like many other arts organizations in these difficult times, Kundiman has suffered from budget cuts. To help, Achiote Press teamed up wit Kundiman poets to create a beautiful anthology featuring numerous Asian American writers.
We sold many copies of the chapbook at the UC Berkeley fundraising reading on Thursday, and now we are continuing our efforts online.
Please click this link to order your copy of the chapbook and to read the powerful introduction written by the editors. Cost: $7 (shipping included). Proceeds will be donated to Kundiman.
Supplies are limited so please order soon.
Writers in the anthology Include: Neil Aitken, Tamiko Beyer, Ching-In Chen, Marilyn Chin, Oliver de la Paz, Vanessa Huang, Janine Joseph, Joseph O. Legaspi, Ngoc Luu, Sally Wen Mao, Noel Pabillo Mariano, Soham Patel, Jai Arun Ravine, Margaret Rhee, Melissa Roxas, Brynn Saito, Sharon Suzuki-Martinez, Yael Villafranca, Andre Yang, and Debbie Yee
We hope you will be able to support this collaboration! & please help us spread the word!
(and how gorgeous is the wraparound cover!)
