Lines of Sight: Visual Art in Asian American Poetry


Christine Wong Yap. Untitled (one half gallon), 2006, paper, 8 x 8 x 1 inches / 20 x 20 x 2.5 cm.


The folio “Lines of Sight: Visual Art in Asian American Poetry,” which I guest edited for The Margins, has just been published. There’s some really outstanding work featured by the artists and poets below alongside beautiful and provocative images. While I sought to bring together a lot of previously published work, the folio contains some brand new writing.
