Featuring Wendy Xu, Faisal Mohyuddin, Raena Shirali, Ahmad Almallah, and Cynthia Dewi Oka


How does intergenerational trauma in API immigrant communities shape our relationships to labor, including intimate, familial, and emotional labor?

Five API poets share original work to explore these questions. More info here.
