Chapter 15. Gender Identity and the Creative Writing Classroom

Ching-In Chen

Extract

Ching-In Chen I am never as nervous as when I enter into a room full of writers who purportedly share the same identity as I do. The stakes are higher, it seems, to connect, to make something of our shared similarity, to identify with each other because this kind of space so rarely happens. When I first arrived at Kundiman, a writing retreat for emerging Asian American poets, I had already been to Voices of Our Nations Arts Foundation (VONA) , a writing workshop for writers of color. But there had still been a buffer of enough distance, enough recognizable difference in a way that entering into that first sharing circle at Kundiman did not. The general question is about acceptance and inclusion in a world in which one is often very familiar with not being accepted and included. In some ways, my writing identity has emerged from that sense.
