Call for Submissions

Call for Submissions: Asian Americans on the City

Open the CityDrunken Boat, online journal of the arts, along with the Asian American Writers Workshop, announce a call for works in a variety of media (poems, artworks, essays, photography, translations, architectural blueprints, videos, web work, mixed media, documentary, theatrical production) that respond to the question of Asian and Middle Eastern-American populations in urban spaces. These can take a particular city as point of departure, can verge to cities around the world, engaging with the notion of how the forces of displacement and accretion intersect to create identity in a particular environment. We envision Chinatown, Little India, mosques in metropolitan areas, ethnic groceries, foreign film theaters, etc. all as possible sites for investigation. Deadline: October 1st. Make sure to select Asian-Americans on the City as your submission’s genre.
