Today I got an email telling me that my personal essay, "When Words Make You Real," was accepted in the mixed-race anthology The Beiging of America, which is awesome. I'm happy, proud even, to be part of such a groundbreaking but also crucial anthology exploring what it means to be mixed race (in my case, hapa) in America.
Last Night on Earth, edited by Ryan Bradford + Justin Hudnall. The premise of this anthology is simple: The world is going to end tomorrow. How do you spend your last day on this planet + who do you spend it with? Considering I wrote this short story explicitly for this anthology, you can imagine my happiness/relief when it was accepted. Anyway, there are some great stories in here by Natanya Pulley, Amelia Gray, Pat Johnson, Kate Lee + many more I haven't read yet. So check it out if you're interested. There's some great shit in here.
