NEW Publication! My Poem in Walang Hiya Anthology

http://www.walanghiyaanthology.com/

Walang Hiya Anthology: Literature Taking Risks Toward Liberatory Practice Just released in time for Philippine Independence Day, is a brand new anthology, featuring one of my poems! I am honored to be one of the 32 Filipino and Filipino American authors published in Walang Hiya… Literature Taking Risks for Liberatory Practice, edited by Lolan Buhain Sevilla and Roseli Ilano, and published by Carayan Press. Available for direct order at www.walanghiyaanthology.com,  www.carayanpress.org, and independent booksellers near you beginning June 12, 2010.

This is a bittersweet accomplishment for me, since it is the first poem that I’ve had published about my father, entitled “Holes”. I submitted it over a year ago, but as you know, publications take a while to see print. Given the serious content of the poem, I am a bit glad that it is being released after my father’s death. I have written others about him since then and will try to post them soon.

Copies of Walang Hiya anthology should be available for sale at the FANHS Conference in Seattle: http://fanhsis25.blogspot.com and maybe I’ll even read the poem there… Stay tuned to my website: emilylawsin.com for other upcoming reading events!
