In this seminar, we’ll write and share our creative work.  We will examine how Asian American writers deal with the personal and the political; how we translate our bicultural, bilingual loyalties into full fictional narratives.  We will consider the reader and the critic.  We will discuss the writers’ technique and talent in crossing ethnic borders on the page.  What empowers a writer: experience or imagination?Be ready to set up a writing sanctuary and commit two hours every day to the practice of writing.

To be considered for the class, please submit your best work, (10 pgs. dbl spaced, max) with a cover letter introducing yourself, your goals as a writer, how long you’ve been writing, your favorite writers, and a list of the last five books read.  Tell me your rank, junior, senior.  What inspired you to become a writer?  Which books are the most influential and why.
