Things have been rolling along so fast in the O.T. world that your humble webmaster has not been able to keep up! We just finished our last workshop session of the year (yesterday), and the week before, we were honored by the presence of a special guest, Prof. Shimon Tanaka, who came out and talked with us about the marketing of Asian American fiction and some of the unique decisions that Asian American writers have to make about language, setting, and characterization.

This Friday – we are happy to announce – we will be wrapping up what has been a landmark first year with our Spring Quarter Reading, to be held from 8pm to 10 pm in the A3C Couchroom (on the Third Floor of the Old Union Clubhouse). Please come join us for a program of student-written poetry and prose and a special presentation of the scripts created during our playwriting workshop with the AATP. Light refreshments will follow, courtesy of the English Department.

Thanks very much to the awesome actors from the Asian American Theatre Project who came out to help us read-through and workshop our scenes this past Tuesday. We had a blast, and we would love to see you guys at our final reading if you can make it (the group loved you guys; there were many murmurs of “can we please have the actors read our scripts for us at the reading?”)

In other news, we have just finished electing our new officers for the 2008-2009 school year. This coming week, the new board will begin the process of transitioning into their new roles. They are:

Henry Leung, President
Ben-Zhen Sung, Vice President
Atha Fong, Financial Officer
[Calendar Administrator, still TBA].

Congratulations, guys!
