Established in 1991, The Asian American Writers' Workshop, a nonprofit literary arts organization based in New York city, was founded in support of writers, literature and community.
Operating out of our 6,000 square-foot loft, AAWS sponsors readings, book parties and panel discussions, and offers creative writing workshops. Each winter they present The Annual Asian American Literary Awards Ceremony to recognize outstanding literary works by Americans of Asian descent. Throughout the year, they offer various youth arts programs, including the Where I'm Calling From youth workshop.
The AAWW also offers internships in a number of areas. Application deadline February 1 of each year, then on a rolling basis until all positions are filled
