Hiromi Goto and Erica Isomura explore the nuances of intergenerational mentorship as queer POC writers.

Hiromi Goto (@hiromigotowrites),
an emigrant from Japan, gratefully resides on the Unceded Musqueam, Skwxwú7mesh, and Tsleil-Waututh Territories. She’s the author of many books. Her first graphic novel, Shadow Life, with artist Ann Xu, is pending with First Second Books. Hiromi is currently being guided by land-based learning and at work on a second graphic novel.

A Queer Bird, Hiromi Goto

Erica Isomura (@ericahiroko) is an
emerging writer and community organizer living on unceded Musqueam, Skwxwú7mesh and Tsleil-Waututh homelands. In 2019, Erica’s work won Briarpatch Magazine’s Writing In The Margins contest, selected by Alicia Elliott. She is coping with the pandemic by drawing quarantine comics and creating poetic installations in her living room window.
