Hmong American writings is a growing area. In the past decade, pioneering Hmong writers have established their voices in the literary world and continue to pave new paths for new generations of Hmong writers. Organizations such as the Hmong American Writers’ Circle (HAWC) is an inspiration to the start of this club.
Hmong American Ink & Stories (HAIS) creates a space to reaffirm, encourage, and professionalize Hmong writers and other marginalized voices, particularly hoping to empower Asian Pacific voices.
Utilizing the medium of writing, we encourage writers to become active participants in documenting themselves and their stories in a system that has historically left them behind. We seek to foster community and creativity, and be a welcoming space for members to write, share, and receive feedback for their works. Writings are not limited to the literary kind and can be of the academic and professional nature. Members will also be shown resources about publications and be exposed to current and emerging Asian Pacific voices in the literary world. By the end of the year, we seek to publish a literary journal that will be open to Fresno State students, the larger community of Central Valley and beyond.
