Call for Essays: Filipino Americans in the Salinas Valley & Monterey Bay Area

CALL FOR ESSAYS: FANHS (Filipino American National Historical Society) Monterey Bay is gathering personal essays (no longer than 1,250 words, total) for a book about Filipino life and history in Salinas Valley and the Santa Cruz county and Monterey county areas. We seek essays by Filipinos of all ages that tell us what life, as a Filipino, has been like for you and your family. We want to emphasize that this will be a cross-generational collection of essays; while we value the contributions of older and middle-aged Filipinos, we also want to know about the issues that younger Filipinos face today. If you migrated to, or grew up in the areas mentioned above and would like to be a contributor, please query us, or send your submission to by March 15, 2015.
