More Happy Kundiman News

Filed under: General — Neil Aitken @ 11:20 am

My good friend and fellow Kundiman grad Chi Lam just let me know that Shenandoah will be publishing her poem “ink & water” — a poem she polished and read for us at Kundiman. It so moved Lawson Inada, that he gave up his feature block at the public reading at Kundiman because he wanted everyone to hear this piece.

It’s powerful. Brilliant imagery. Gripping narrative. Has goldfish and speedo-clad Thai pirates that come in the night. Terrifying and amazing work. Pick up the next issue of Shenandoah and read it for yourself.
