Welcome to the Asian American Literary Collective!

We’re a group of Asian American writers based in Minnesota.  We seek to build a community centered around our Asian American experience and serve this community through literature and arts related to literature.  Please take a look around our website and reach out to us (here) for any questions.


To create a community of Asian American writers to learn about our collective past, to explore our identity in the Asian diaspora, and to support our literary pursuits moving forward.

Write On! (Event Series)

Write On! is our our biweekly meetup where we connect with Asian American writers and carve out time to in our busy lives to write. All you need to bring is something to write with, an interest in writing, and yourself. All levels are welcome from “I’m interested in writing and have no experience” and above.

The first hour, we will socialize and connect with each other (centering on our Asian American identity and writing). The second hour, we write!

Please email us to see how you can join!
