This article draws on an 18th-month digital ethnography of Asian American online writers to extend on current theories of digital publics and argues for a broader framework that includes the co-constructing relationship writers have, not only with their digital environments, but also through their ethnic and raced experiences. Additionally, online writing ecologies can be seen as simultaneous and overlapping community and public imaginaries for writers who may need to have multiple audience orientations in order to articulate their ethnic and raced experiences.
