Silent Anatomies now available for Pre-Order!

Now this is getting real. Silent Anatomies, is now available for pre-order on Amazon! A literary hybrid, this book is definitely for the adventurous in poetry, particularly those interested in its intersections with visual art, the medical humanities, and contemporary Asian-American writing. I think of it as my contribution to the Asian-American Avante-Garde, adding a voice to the Chinese diaspora who claim both the Philippines and the United States as home. This book would not be possible without the support and camaraderie of so many people, especially my Kundiman family.


Monica's Art on the cover of "On the Refusal to Speak"

Published by Dancing Girl Press, 2012

One of my favorite collaborations was with a wonderful poet, Rebecca Givens Rolland, where I created an interactive experience of one of her poems called Fallow. This month she releases a new chapbook called On the Refusal to Speak, which features some artwork from Fallow on the cover. Her chapbook is published by Dancing Girl Press and is a stunning collection of poems.
