South Asian Avant-Garde (SAAG): A Dissident Literary Anthology

by Asian American Writers' Workshop

South Asian Avant-Garde (SAAG), a forthcoming literary anthology, features intimate incendiary fiction, essays, journalism, plays, poetry, and hybrid, multimedia work. It reclaims dissident and collaborative traditions that have long been excised from South Asian histories, and forges new radical communities. The digital platform allows work to travel everywhere South Asians live and practice.

Transgression, experimentation, and true radicalism are rare and expensive in a world structured around majoritarian consensus, conformity, and party-line loyalism. This is especially true for minority voices, who are routinely devalued. We must value creative labor, no excuses. Your support will go directly to the multitude of writers and artists who will be contributing to this project. 

To show our gratitude, we offer perks at each level of support. Every donation brings us closer to amplifying South Asian voices that are imagining and building better and freer futures for us all.
