In 2010, we presented ACWW Community Awards to Tradewind Books’ Michael Katz of Vancouver and playwright Marty Chan from Edmonton. Dinner held at Foo’s Ho Ho in Chinatown Vancouver.
The Asian Canadian Writers’ Workshop (ACWW) began as a writing collective in the early 1960s, by dedicated Asian Canadian writers: Rick Shiomi (playwright), Sky Lee (novelist), Paul Yee (children’s author), Jim Wong-Chu (poet) and Sean Gunn (poet). In 1995, ACWW was incorporated as a non-profit society which started publishing Ricepaper Magazine, originally as a newsletter to showcase the work of emerging Asian Canadian writers is now a nationally recognized web-based magazine with a global audience.
