NYC-based Asian American Writers Workshop is seeking to raise $5,000 for its literary festival, Page Turner, via Kickstarter.
If you haven’t heard of the site, Kickstarter is “a new way to fund creative ideas and ambitious endeavors… powered by a unique all-or-nothing funding method where projects must be fully-funded or no money changes hands.”
All donations are tax-deductible and make you eligible to win some cool prizes, including those that highlight Asian American success in a variety of fields like food, writing, gaming, Hollywood, Silicon Valley and more:
- Signed copy of a script from The Office by Danny Chun, the head writer.
- Consultation with William Endeavor Morris literary agent Kirby Kim.
- Signed book from pastry chef Joanne Chang, of Flour bakery in Boston.
- Hour-long coffees with Silicon Venture investors: Patrick Chung of NEA, Harj Taggar of Y Combinator, Richard de Silva of Highland Capital Partners, David Lee of SV Angel, Puneet Agarwal of True Ventures, Andrew Chun of Lightspeed Venture Partners, and James Cham of Trinity Ventures.
- Sudoku lessons from Wei-Hwa Huang, national Sudoku champion.
- Walking tour of New York City Chinatown street food with Jennifer 8. Lee
