New Poems

Nicholas Wong, a great poet, who is here on a barter fellowship, just published a few new poems here on the cool blog Asia Writes. The poems were written during his Rimbun Dahan Artist Residency in Malaysia in August '08.

Nic was a recipient of the Academy of American Poets Award in 2008 and 2010 and is studying Comparative Literature & Society at Columbia University. He's working on his first poetry collection, Extinction Suite, his poems having appeared in The Rialto, Southeast Asian Review of English, and The Columbia Review, among others.
