Marvel at the amazing and creative ways that writers can imagine Little Tokyo and expand the fictional boundaries of the Japanese American experience. Each year, the Imagine Little Tokyo Short Story Contest heightens awareness of Los Angeles’ Little Tokyo by challenging both new and experienced writers to write a story that captures the spirit and essence of Little Tokyo and the people in it. Noted theatre artists (to be announced) will showcase the winning stories with dramatic readings from the three contest categories—Adult, Youth, and Japanese language. Each category winner is awarded cash prize and their story will be published in The Rafu Shimpo, on Discover Nikkei, and on the new Little Tokyo Historical Society website.
The contest is presented by Little Tokyo Historical Society in partnership with JANM’s Discover Nikkei project.
RSVPs are required; please use the ticket link.
