A publishing house that focuses on Asian and Pacific Islander diasporic literature has relocated to the University of Southern California's Department of American Studies and Ethnicity as part of a five-year partnership with the school. Under the agreement, students get hands-on experience in book publishing through Kaya Press, which was formerly based in New York. Sunyoung Lee, Kaya's publisher, told USC's student-run Daily Trojan that Kaya also aims to establish an organization for Asian-American writers that's similar to New York's Asian American Writers' Workshop, where writers can create, develop and get support for their works. The partnership with USC just made sense, Lee said. "USC's interest in becoming the premier university of the Asia Pacific age seemed like a perfect fit for Kaya Press in particular," Lee told the Daily Trojan. "We're very much looking forward to contributing to USC's emerging profile as a powerhouse in this area."
