Kundiman was co-founded in 2002 by Filipino American poets Sarah Gambito and Joseph O. Legaspi as a platform for emerging Asian American writers. The nonprofit organization offers writing retreats, a reading series and a poetry prize.
Poet Neil Aitken writes of Asian American poetry as “being so vibrant, so powerful, so incredibly and indelibly written on my soul and across this nation.”
