AAWW Radio: New Asian American Writers & Literature

AAWW Radio: New Asian American Writers & Literature

Published by: Asian American Writers' Workshop
51 Episodes | First Released: Oct 17 '17
AAWW Radio is the podcast of the Asian American Writers' Workshop, a national nonprofit dedicated to the idea that Asian American stories deserve to be told. Listen to AAWW Radio and you’ll hear selected audio from our current and past events. We’ve hosted established writers like Claudia Rankine, Maxine Hong Kingston, Roxane Gay, Amitav Ghosh, and Hanya Yanagihara, as well as more emerging writers like Ocean Vuong, Solmaz Sharif, and Jenny Zhang. Our events are intimate and intellectual, quirky yet curated, dedicated to social justice but with a sense of humor and weirdness. We curate our events to juxtapose novelists and activists, poets and intellectuals, and bring together people who usually wouldn’t be in the same room. We’ve got it all: from avant-garde poetry to post-colonial politics, feminist comics to lyric verse, literary fiction to dispatches from the racial justice left. AAWW Radio features curated audio from the literary events we hold weekly in our New York City reading room, a legendary downtown art space that hosted Jhumpa Lahiri’s first book party. Founded in 1991, AAWW is an alternative literary arts space working at the intersection of race, migration, and social justice. A sanctuary for the immigrant imagination, we’re inventing the future of Asian American literary culture. Learn more by visiting aaww.org. Produced by the Asian American Writers' Workshop.

Excellent and desperately needed podcast

I’ve felt for some time now that the world desperately needs more thoughtful, critical discussion by and for Asian Americans, so I’m just thrilled about this show from AAWW. Every episode is excellent, always insightful and intelligent, and often quite fun and funny as well. Great show!

Feels Like Home

Ever since going to my first AAWW event I’ve dreamed of the day I could listen to the conversations with authors while on the go. The content always feels so intimate and welcoming and I’m so glad to now be able to share my experiences at the Workshop with friends and family who aren’t able to go to these events.

Wow! Now I can get literary on the go!

Last year, I regrettably missed the event "The Face" featuring Ruth Ozeki and Tash Aw. However, technology has advanced to the point where I can not just relive the event in its juicy entirety, but do so while staring out the window of the NYC subway! Now, I can go to bed happy.
