Issue 01: Beginnings

A beginning can symbolize many things. Whether it's experiencing something for the first time, finding yourself in an unexpected turn of events, or reflecting upon a moment of self-discovery, Issue 01 uses personal storytelling to showcase the beauty and power of open vulnerability and introspection.

Our inaugural issue features the incredible work of over 20 contributors who aren't afraid to provide a refreshingly candid take on contemporary Asian American culture in the form of poetry, short stories, essays, illustration, photography, and more.

Casey Sweeney, Chloe Kojima, Dan Xin, Derek Lu, Emily Luan, Felicia Liang, Gary Yeh, Jamie Li, Jason Lam, Jeanne Jalandoni, Jenevieve Ting, Johnny Tang, Loretta Chao, Lori Bailey, Luke Cheng, Mengwen Cao, Sara Zin, Sruthi Sadhujan, Tria Chang, and Yayun Chang-Cahill.
