The Far East Project is an ongoing attempt to create a people’s history of San Diego’s East County through the prism of its residents’ perspectives, curated through solicited stories, poems, photography, journalism and more. In addition to this online archive, The Far East publishes print and digital books featuring exclusive content, periodically produces showcases throughout the Southern California region, and leads initiatives to strengthen the community and its economy through art.
It’s first collection of stories by and about East County, “Everything Just As It Is,” was published in 2012 as a people’ s history of the region told through non-fiction and poetry. A paperback version has
been designed for San Diego City College to teach in its literature and creative writing classes, where participants in the Project are invited to speak and read each semester.
Your stories and photographs about East County are always welcome and invited. Submit to us anytime.
The Far East Project was launched in 2012 through a Creative Catalyst Fellowship granted by the San Diego Foundation.
