kaya publishes books of the asian pacific diaspora


We’re thrilled to announce the launch of Milkteeth Books, the intern-run chapbook imprint of Kaya Press!

For the past 28 years, Kaya has been a space where Asian and Pacific Islander literature can thrive in its most left-field, provocative ways. We, the interns of Kaya Press, wanted to create an imprint reflecting those sensibilities with the young and emerging writers of the APIDA diaspora in mind.

We’re kicking off our launch and accepting chapbook manuscripts from emerging APIDA-diasporic writers, artists, and/or creatives. We’re looking for experimental works that engage with our theme ellipsis to release as a limited-print chapbook of 15-20 pages.

We encourage those who identify as APIDA-diasporic and have not yet released a chapbook-length collection of works to submit. The winner will receive a $200 honorarium + 10 author copies. We will be accepting submissions until January 9, 2022 @ 11:59 pm PST.

Check out our Submittable for General Guidelines and more about our theme, ellipsis.
