Sign up a special writing workshop for Asian Pacific Islander American next-gen writers, meaning those who are trying to trace their family histories across the Pacific and beyond. Led by Q.M. Zhang, author of Accomplice to Memory.

Friday May 13th, 4 – 5:30 EDT [1 – 2:30 PST] — on Zoom. 

$20 registration — register here.

Q.M. Zhang (Kimberly Chang) is a writer, teacher, editor, and founder of MemoryWorks, a creative research and writing practice for tracing our histories and writing our stories in the face of historical erasures and intergenerational silences.
About the Workshop: “Within our diverse histories and lineages, there are shared silences around war, colonization, revolution, migration, and racism that make this kind of workshop space urgent and necessary. This workshop will offer creative tools and practices for re-searching and writing into intergenerational silences and historical erasures that are all too familiar within API diasporic families and communities around the world. In this workshop, we will turn over soil, gather fragments and traces we find there, and use these as source materials for our experiments with hybrid forms of writing. Whether you are just beginning to ask questions of your past, or you already have a project underway, you will leave this workshop with new tools and writing on the page.” – Q.M. Zhang
