The Asian American Writers’ Workshop is in the process of forming a young professionals board to promote the Workshop’s mission and programs. We thought members of the Asian American Journalists New England Chapter would be interested in learning more about this opportunity to support the arts and Asian American communities. The Associates Board application and additional details are now available online.
For 20 years we have held readings, panel discussions, book parties, and other events spotlighting writers like Michael Ondaatje, Maxine Hong Kingston, and Jhumpa Lahiri, establishing ourselves as an intellectual sanctuary for Asian American literature. For more information, please visit us at www.aaww.org.
