Go Home!—Twenty-Four Journeys from the Asian American Writers’ Workshop and the Feminist Press


I’m honored to be the editor for the Go Home! Anthology. Today, I’m thrilled to announce our contributors. Their beautiful words will be with you in 2018. Some of the names you will recognize—we reached out to writers we admired. Some will be new to you—we want to showcase rising talents. Some were new to us—we met their voices through our open call.

I have been an editor on two lit mags, and a reader for NPR. I’ve read much brilliant unpublished work. I have never cried so much as reading our open call submissions. That’s not to say all the stories and poems were sad, but they had vigor and truth.  We couldn’t include many of the stories that broke me in half. Please keep sharing your words.
