kaya publishes books of the asian pacific diaspora


Kaya poet Nicky Sa-eun Schildkraut was recently featured on International Examiner in an interview with Bruce Fulton!

In the Q&A Nicky discusses how her identity as a Korean adoptee has influenced her writing and how this manifests in her poetry collection Magnetic Refrain, which was published by Kaya Press last year. “Being in-between,” she says, “is what compels so many of us to write about the fractures of identity.”

“The most consistent intelligent wide-ranging committed press I know – Kaya is an example of how to turn ‘small’ books into literary arrows that shoot straight and true into the heart of our culture and (of course) ourselves.”

— Junot Díaz
