Kundiman & the Asian American Feminist Collective are proud to announce our brand-new Asian American Feminist Writing Workshop!

This workshop will give participants the opportunity to celebrate the strong tradition of Asian American feminist writers and activists by using Asian American feminist history to inspire our own creative writing. In this three-month program, we will engage with the work of Asian American feminists before us, and take inspiration from them as we create our own. From February to April 2021, fifteen participants will attend classes and small group meetings, culminating in the publication of a brand new Asian American feminist zine. We will also hold a final reading event in May. 

Classes will focus on exploring the history of Asian American feminism as well as essential writings by feminists of color. The program will consist of 6 bi-weekly classes, as well as 6 small group study sessions run by the Asian American Feminist Collective.

Classes and mentorship sessions will be held remotely. Please keep in mind that classes will be held in Eastern Time.

Applications will be open for submission from October 1st–November 1st, 2020.

The Asian American Feminist Writing Workshop is open to Asian American women and Asian American nonbinary individuals.
