Paul Yoon on Sarabande + NEA

"The support of Sarabande and the NEA is the only reason I have a writing life." —Paul Yoon

For more than twenty years Sarabande has received generous funding from the National Endowment for the Arts in support of our publishing and educational programming. Each year, a handful of our titles receive special, earmarked funding from the NEA. In 2009, Once the Shore was one of those titles. Here's author Paul Yoon on publishing his debut short story collection Once the Shore.

"The support of Sarabande and the NEA is the only reason I have a writing life. They opened a door and gave permission for me to engage with the world and have a voice at a time when I felt voiceless. We need them, and all homes like theirs, now more than ever."
