Philippine American Literary House, PALH

Welcome to the website of PALH, also known as Philippine American Literary House.  PALH also known as Philippine American Literary House is a small press that publishes high quality fiction and creative non-fiction by Filipino Americans and other Filipinos. PALH's beginnings connect with PAWWA (Philippine American Women Writers and Artists), an award-winning group that supported other Filipina writers and artists and provided community service.  PAWWA recognized the lack of Filipino and Filipino American books in the United States and encouraged PAWWA co-founders Cecilia Brainard and Susan Montepio to start PALH.   PALH currently continues under the leadership of Cecilia Brainard with the help of an Advisory Board.
