Is it just me or are the good folks down at the The Asian American Writers' Workshop just that much more literay than I'll ever be? I know the answer to that question but I thought I'd pose it anyway, mostly for me, just because at least then I can respond to my own question putting letters together, which make sentences, which at the end of the day helps in me sounding like a somewhat coherent individual.
And not so much like an illiterate dumbass.
Always wanted to dine with literary superstars?Nice.
