Winner of AAPI Writing Fellowship

Writers Boot Camp AAPI Fellowship winners: Tracy Held, Helen Huang, and Alison Minami.

We’re already a third of the way into the Writers Boot Camp where I’m drafting a new TV pilot on spec with the working title, “The Gold West.” By September, I will have a second revision of this one-hour pilot and will be excited to start shopping it around town. The fellowships provide a fast-paced series of courses and exercises to quickly but thoroughly bound through initial drafts of new written material, and I’m already falling in love with my characters and their unfortunate conflicts.

I’m especially delighted to be embarking on this adventure with friend and collaborator Alison Minami.

Semi-Finalist for Mu Tang Clan

I am honored to be listed as a semi-finalist for the inaugural Mu Tang Clan playwrights incubator. Theater Mu is doing a lot for Asian American playwrights across the country and I could tell this was an extremely competitive process. Congratulations to Marlina Gonzalez (Minneapolis, MN), Keiko Green (La Jolla, CA), Kathy Haddad (Minneapolis, MN), Alex Lin (Saddle River, NJ), and Susan Xu (San Francisco, CA) for making it into the program!
