Asian American Poets Speak Out Amidst the Covid-19 Pandemic
Guest Editor: Abigail Licad
“You are moving accordingly never ahead of the movement never behind the movement you are carrying the weight from outside being the weight inside. You move. You are being moved. You are movement.”
—Dictee, Theresa Hak Kyun Cha
In addition to causing countless tragic deaths, the spread of Covid-19 disease has unleashed a contagion of anti-Asian sentiment across the country and around the world. MiGoZine, an online site that showcases poems as commentary on current events as shared experience and historical resource, seeks in its Summer 2020 issue to combat ignorance and hate with poetic voices of cultural and historical rootedness, identity, and solidarity. Please send us up to three (3) poems that explore your experiences and what it means to be Asian American in the time of Covid-19. Deadline is June 5, 2020. To submit and send any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
