can’t believe we are done! I folded by hand each single sheet of 200 copies of a 72-page book, sewed them, cut them, numbered them…i’m tired. but our first event is this sunday at rhizome cafe, 5-7 pm, free and open to the public, so if you are in the vancouver area, stop by! And if you are interested in ordering a copy for $12, email me. Yay! 6 years ago

i carved out a good amount of time today to update the status on the submissions and contact contributors and such, so now i think we might have enough to put this baby together! of course, now i’m also thinking about the complete mixed up works in one compilation, published via lulu.com, but i can’t think about that right now until we actually have the final chapbook finished. 6 years ago
6 years ago, my friend Jamie and I were asked to organize a reading and publication for mixed race Asian American writers and artists (known as Hapa, coming from the hawaiian word “hapa haole”). we did Mixed Up, the first collection of works by Hapa writers and artists, and then shortly thereafter, we did Too Mixed Up, the second collection. We figured we’d do a trilogy since 3 is a nice number. All copies of the first two collections were sold out. But then we both moved, had babies (well, I did), and other life changes, and the third chapbook was left in the dust. We are now trying to resurrect it and get it done, once and for all. Looks like we might achieve it this summer, so we can put closure on this project! 7 years ago
