AlliterAsian: Celebrating 20 Years of Ricepaper Magazine launches at the Vancouver Writers' Fest

AlliterAsian: Celebrating 20 Years of Ricepaper Magazine will be launching at The Vancouver Writers' Fest on Friday, October 23, 2015 - 1:00pm to 2:30pm at Studio 1398.

Many of today’s acclaimed Asian Canadian writers first appeared in the pages of Ricepaper magazine, which celebrates 20 years of publication this year. In a climate that sees many literary magazines foundering, it’s a happy occasion to pay homage to one that has nurtured so many important voices over the years and continues to thrive. To mark this occasion, Arsenal Pulp Press has released AlliterAsian, a celebratory anthology filled with exclusive interviews, writing and excerpts of works-in-progress. Join established and emerging contributors Ann Marie Fleming, Evelyn Lau, Yasuko Thanh, Fred Wahand Rita Wong (hosted by CBC's Margaret Gallagher) for readings and a lively discussion about Ricepaper’s place, what it’s meant for their careers and what it means for the next generation of Asian Canadian writers.
