The Asian American Writers’ Workshop’s Margins Fellowship was first established in 2014, as part of AAWW’s 25 year tradition of incubating emerging writers of color. A hub for the next generation of Asian American literature, the Margins Fellowship materially improves the lives of emerging writers of color through an innovative mix of re-granting, publication, and career development. Four writers are annually supported through the year-long fellowship which provides them with financial support, publication opportunities, work space, mentorship, and a residency at the Millay Colony for the Arts.

Come celebrate the 2019 Margins cohort with our fellows—Amanda Ajamfar, Sabrina Imbler, Yuxi Lin and Abigail Savitch-Lew—and their mentors, novelist Zaina Arafat, the Poet Laureate of Brooklyn Tina Chang, National Book Award finalist Lisa Ko, and New York Times bestselling science writer Ed Yong. We’ll have cake, drinks, and will be selling copies of a limited-edition chapbook featuring selections of each fellow’s writing and the art of Kaitlin Chan.

RSVP HERE! $5 Suggested Donation.
