Are you a New York City-based Chinese American who feels strongly that the arts and culture scene of first-generation Chinese in Manhattan's Chinatown needs to be shared to a wider audience? The Asian American Writers’ Workshop is looking for writers who will cover and write about events like Cantonese opera, local art shows, calligraphy, tai chi, etc. 

The Manhattan Chinatown Arts project aims to bridge generations and to introduce traditional Chinese arts and culture to second-generation Asian American audiences. 

Send us your story pitches (not more than two per submission) and your resume. Kindly include a cover letter. 

Your stories will be posted in Open City, a digital magazine of the the Asian American Writers' Workshop. We have a small budget for writer's honorarium.
