2013 is definitely going to be a busy year. On top of a Big Excellent Personal (non-writing) Project in the works for early January, I just learned that our AWP panel proposal was accepted! All credit goes to panel organizer Allen Gee, who spearheaded the panel, wrote the proposal and whose good joo joo gave the proposal a big boost. Out of 1,300 panel proposals, 516 were accepted.
Since I’m an editor at Kartika Review, I’ll be repping the litmag and my work at KR, on the panel.
Info on our panel:
Inside Asian-American Editing: How Aesthetics and Advocacy Affect Five Editors’ Publishing Decisions. (Allen Gee, Phong Nguyen, Sunyoung Lee, Lawrence Minh Bui Davis, Christine Lee Zilka)
Five editors discuss the aesthetics behind the decisions they make about what books, stories, or essays to publish. Other aspects include: what role does advocacy play in our editing, and how does each editor envision their role in the greater nexus of publishing and racial/ethnic dynamics? The editors will also provide suggestions for correspondence with editors, submissions tips, and time will be allotted for meeting the editors.
See you at AWP 2013 in Boston. 🙂
