Revisiting My First Published Piece

Finding Touch was a personal essay that I wrote in the 1990's.  It was developed in Hope Edelman's writing class at UCLA Extension.  It was published in the anthology Tilting the Continent: Southeast Asian American Writing.  I still remember the joy in getting that acceptance letter, and finding out something I'd written would actually get published. 

Finding Touch sat quietly in Tilting the Continent.  However it's getting new life as a featured story in  Q&A Space>Coming Out Stories from Asian and Pacific Islanders.  The piece can be found here.
