A Quick MN Shout-Out

Welcoming East Coast-based poet, spoken word artist and community activist Ching-In Chen, who's coming to visit all of us in the Twin Cities over the weekend during her time with the Split Rock arts program. She's been keeping a super busy schedule, but we look forward to seeing her!

Ching-In Chen is the daughter of Chinese immigrants and a Kundiman Asian American Poet Fellow.

A community organizer, she helped to plan the 3rd national Asian Pacific American Spoken Word and Poetry Summit in Boston. Ching-In is currently working on a poetry collection about the travails, heartbreak and adventures of a Chinese-American girl called xiaomei. She will be entering the MFA program at University of California Riverside this fall.
