'The poems in Emily Sun's debut collection Vociferate | were inspired by diasporic Asian feminist writers. Like these writers, Emily resists Orientalist tropes as she explores the idea of national and transnational identities, relfects upon the concept of bleonging, and questions what it means to be Asian-Australian.'
