Adam Zhou has been recognized by the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards in the National Level and his works have appeared in The Rising Phoenix Review, Blue Marble Review and Glass: A Journal of Poetry, among others, including a full-length manuscript forthcoming from Indolent Press. As a high school junior at the International School Manila, he has been subject to the wide array of exhibitions cultural perspectives have to offer and aims to share these through writing.
This April, to recognize and honor National Poetry Month, we curated a folio of poems by 10 Asian American high school students. This page features Adam Zhou's "A Beginner's Guide to the Chinese Language." We invite you to take a moment to read the other nine poems in this collection here.
