Alumna Teresa Mei Chuc (MFAW ’12) founded Shabda Press in 2011, and has since published some Goddardites – Sayra Pinto (MFAW ’11), Susan Deer Cloud (MFAW ’11), and David Giver (MFAW ’11). David’s new book I Still Remember the Last Time You Held My Hand was just published and Susan’s second book published by Shabda Press is forthcoming this summer, Before Language.  For a list of presses, journals, and retreats established or run by alumni of the Goddard MFA in Creative Writing program, check out our program’s blog, The Writer in the World.

How does literature remain conversant with the history of war in Asia? Why does it remain vital and relevant? Seventy years after WWII, and forty years after the fall of Saigon, writers whose work was published in Kyoto Journal and who write out of an awareness of war gather to address questions of war and literature’s ongoing response to it. Four writers, some based outside the United States, speak to Japanese, Korean, and Vietnamese literature in light of history and war.
