INTERVIEWS (SUMMER 2014)

Special Issue: Interviews
Edited by Melissa R. Sipin & Bel Poblador

FEATURING: Jessica Hagedorn, M. Evelina Galang, Marianne Villanueva, Nayomi Munaweera, Luisa A. Igloria, Miguel Syjuco, Barbara Jane Reyes, and Lysley Tenorio!

"[Being Filipino American] means that I’m an American, it means that there’s no such thing as a definitive or a quintessential American. It means that Filipinos are here and they have been here, and they’ve invested a lot in this country. It’s also a way of affirming your presence here. I think, also, in the wrong context, it’s a way of marginalization; people can put you to the side because of it. It means a lot of different things." — LYSLEY TENORIO

"If the story is meant to be written, then it will be written. [...] It’s a matter of time and practice, trial and error, experimentation, during which you will grow as a person and as a writer, and learn exactly how to tell the story, what tools you need, and how to wield them."
BARBARA JANE REYES
