Here at Ricepaper and the Asian Canadian Writer’s Workshop Society, we love being “down the hall!”

We truly, truly love Asian Canadian writers. Some of them happen to be Chinese. Some of them are women. Some are heterosexual. Some are not. We love these writers enough to read them, publish them, promote them, feature them at our festivals, and award them prizes and honours at our gatherings. Sometimes we engage them as teachers. We take diversity seriously, and know that  Canada thrives from having a wide spectrum of authors represented in its literary scene. This is why we are loving it here “down the hall,” and have been celebrating Asian Canadian writing since 1994.

Just a sampling of the writers we’ve worked with at Ricepaper includes:

Fred Wah
Joy Kogawa
David Suzuki
Wayson Choy
Denise Chong
Roy Kiyooka
Roy Miki
Paul Yee
Evelyn Lau
Madeliene Thien
