Hey there! Check out this great new project that I (Jordan) have been working on recently: As[I]Am is a soon-to-be-launched Asian American social justice website showcasing the work of artists and activists across the US. We have a Facebook page with our mission statement and a call for submissions out. Our first deadline is March 2nd for submissions to be featured with the launch! Digital zines are gladly accepted. Additionally, any zinesters that want to participate in email interviews for As[I]Am, shoot us an email! Please send submissions and other notes to email@example.com – more info and submission guidelines after the jump.
