The Invisible Invincible Asian American: Publishing Asian Voices

May 19, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm



Wednesday, May 19, 2021
7:00 pm – 8:30 pm EDT on Zoom

Multi-genre publishing panel comprised of published AAPI writers of fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction who also serve in editorial roles at literary journals. The goal is to have a lively and practical discussion and Q&A about their considerations as individual writers when submitting their own work for publication, versus their considerations as editors when deciding what work to publish. The broader goal is to help more AAPI writers learn about how to get their stories, essays, novels, and poems out into the world. Jennifer Chang, Hannah Bae, James Han Mattson, Hasanthika Sirisena with Jung Yun moderating. An audience Q & A follows the discussion.

CityLit Project introduces a NEW series called The Invisible Invincible Asian American: Telling Our Stories that brings exciting new and contemporary voices in AAPI literature front and center. The series includes two mixed-genre panels – one on craft and the other on publishing – featuring writers and editors who share their experiences and processes for writing within the larger AAPI literary landscape and navigating how to glean from stories and narratives that have been told, by moving them forward in new and exciting ways. Also each week throughout May, CityLit will feature Baltimore AAPI Writer’s Spotlight, a series of readings & interview videos posted to our social media & YouTube page, showcasing some of the great Asian American writers, poets, playwrights, and graphic artists that are brewing up goodness in Charm City.

This event is available to all, but we are building this series with Asians and Asian Americans as the central audience in mind. CityLit intends to move past conversations of representation, which tend to be oriented to a white lens, and instead foster a community space for avid AAPI writers and readers looking for dialogue about how narratives are written for peoples and cultures of Asian heritage.
