Introducing The Hyphen Reader!

October 6, 2013


Asian Americans can write. We know it. You know it. Just look at literary giants like Jhumpa Lahiri, Chang Rae-Lee, and Li-young Lee. But what about the emerging talent? How do you find exciting new APIA voices among the inifite space of the websphere?

Introducing The Hyphen Reader, a brand new literary initiative from Hyphen!

Subscribe, and every month, we'll deliver links to one or two stories, excerpts, or poems from emerging or under-the-radar APIA writers we think you should know about. Some of these pieces will be published on our very own blog. Some of them will be from around the internet. All of them will be worth reading. And as a bonus, we'll also link to interviews with authors or book reviews from our site that we're excited about. Our hope is that we bring a new awareness to the kick-ass diversity of voices in the APIA literature world, while helping you discover your new favorite writer(s)!

We'll be sending our first Reader out at the end of October, so subscribe now (for free!) to make sure you don't miss it!
