RICE PAPER is a compilation of Asian American voices (in absolutely any shape, form, and sense of the term) about the mundane, the ordinary, and the extraordinary about what it means to be Asian American today. No contribution is too small, and no observation too trivial. For our fellow non-Asian Americans, your voices are also welcome, as long it has something to do with your exposure to APA culture, heritage, events, etc. Through RICE PAPER, we hope to create a meaningful, permanent record of APAHM and the Asian American Pacific Islander experience. And the best part—you can pick up your own complimentary copy of RICE PAPER when it’s all done. Based on our budget, we will try to print everything that is submitted!
WHAT IS A ZINE?
Zines are self-published, creative works that are motivated by the messages they contain rather than by profit. They give voices to those who go unheard in society. Besides these two principles, zines have no rules—they are the ultimate opportunity for self-expression for literally anyone.
HOW TO CONTRIBUTE
APAHM is makin’ this easy for you.
There are literally only, like, 3 things you need to know for this.
☆ use half of a computer page, folded hamburger style
☆ stick to the theme—whatever that means to you (keep in mind we are printing it in B&W)
☆ MAKE SURE YOUR SUBMISSIONS ARE IN BY APRIL 10TH
P.S. anonymity is totally fine
Make your page(s) on your own time, or come stop by one of our tabling sessions where we will be providing you with materials and generous encouragement, and some prompts for those who want to contribute but haven’t exactly figured out what they want to say
