The Tamejavi Cultural Organizing Fellowship Program will be publishing a zine called “MAI” in March. This publication will be the first of a series of creative literary space for for Southeast Asian Americans whose work reflects and tell the stories of Southeast Asian America, particularly the post-war diaspora refugee communities who were displaced from their home country and migrated to the United States post Vietnam War. There is a large Southeast Asian American community of Hmong, Laos, Cambodian, and Mien in California’s Central Valley where there is a lack of creative space. The zine is a small magazine/booklet compiled of creative works by artists and writers of all level. Submit your story, poetry, art, or photography to the 1st volume commemorating the Southeast Asian American women for Women’s History Month.
