From Achiote Press:
We are excited to announce Achiote Press' newest chapbook: Here is a Pen: An Anthology of West Coast Kundiman Poets, edited by Ching-in Chen, Margaret Rhee, and Debbie Yee.
Kundiman is a wonderful 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to providing a nurturing space for Asian American poets. Like many other arts organizations in these difficult times, Kundiman has suffered from budget cuts. To help, Achiote Press teamed up with three Kundiman poets to create a beautiful anthology featuring numerous Asian American writers.
We conducted a fundraising reading on the UC Berkeley campus on 9/17/09, and now we are continuing our efforts online.
Please click link to order your copy of this chapbook and to read the introduction (http://www.achiotepress.com/kundiman.htm). Cost: $7 (shipping included). Proceeds will be donated to Kundiman.
Supplies are limited so please order soon.

Legaspi, Ngoc Luu, Sally Wen Mao, Noel Pabillo Mariano, Soham Patel, Jai Arun Ravine, Margaret Rhee, Melissa Roxas, Brynn Saito, Sharon Suzuki-Martinez, Yael Villafranca, Andre Yang, and Debbie Yee
