Hot off the Presses! 

COMMUNITY (WINTER 2014)

TAYO's first Special Issue: Community
Edited by Melissa R. Sipin

FEATURING: Mg Roberts, Janice Sapigao, Maria Vallarta, Grace Burns, Marie Artap, Raymond Sapida, Jean Pada, Trinidad Escobar, Megan Zapanta, Kathleen Gutierrez, Joshua Castro, Terry Bautista, Kay Cuajunco & more!

"Not all teenagers are fools; not all Filipinos are maids; not all Filipinos are nannies; not all Filipinos are gangbangers; not all Filipinos are poor; not all Filipinos are desperate; not all Filipinos are content; not all Filipinos are angry. This special issue [...] cannot encompass the magnitude and beauty of what it is like to be Filipino. But: we are here, in America, and we are human, and we have been here for a long, long time. The land knows it. And with our brown hands, we present to you a slice of that phantasmagoria: Filipinos living in the Bay Area, here and now—living and breathing, kicking and screaming, loving and being."

Reviews


TAYO is opening a whole new category to our magazine: the Reviews Section. In July 2014, we'll solicit and send out a call for submissions for reviews on Filipino/Filipino American books. We hope to curate a space online where critical readership intersects with the myriad of Filipino/Filipino American books, adding to the growing scholarship of Asian American literature.
