kaya publishes books of the asian pacific diaspora


Co-organized with our wonderful friends KundimanAsian American Writers’ WorkshopThe Asian American Literary Review, and the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center, Literaoke was an epic closure of AWP19!

The venue, Chopsticks Karaoke Bar, was packed with about 200 people! Some people could not even find seats, but it did not stop them from having fun. Featured lineups read their original works, followed by one minute of their favorite karaoke bangers. With a wonderful selection from 70s disco to 90s grunge, and from angry breakup song to post-punk ‘gospel’, Literaoke was definitely the highlight of AWP!

Heartfelt thank you to everyone who made this event a night to remember: all the performers, co-organizers, venue, and everyone who attended. See you all at the next Literaoke!
