Go Blog: William Wong And Bao Phi

Thursday, August 20, 2009

Some random news on writers gone blogging that got sent in my way including Bao Phi who's got a gig down at the Star Tribune (see the blog here) and William Wong down at SFGate and CityBrights.

Here's a little from the new Bao Phi blog:

As much as I am grateful for what I have, I can never escape the feeling that I’m one misunderstanding away from being abused by police. Money anxieties are still frequent, and I’m close enough to poverty that I don’t romanticize it. I certainly don’t want to go back to the hours upon years I spent working at a multitude of jobs for low pay and no benefits. I have daily guilt that I can’t support my family the way they’ve supported me. And there is that horrendous feeling that my people, Asian American people, are not taken seriously at best and are hated at worst.
Both voices should be great to hear and I'll be looking forward to reading what they have to say.
