Eastlit July 2014 is now out . Once again we are seeing massive readership of this issue which does not seem to be abating in the first two weeks. It is particularly pleasing to see interest in English literature focused on East and South East Asia increasing. We continue to introduce new local non-native writers as well as the more established and native users of English.
In this issue of Eastlit there are 5 writers or artists new to Eastlit. The cover picture features Uighur Barbecuse by Xenia Taiga. Thanks Xenia.
Eastlit July 2014 has a variety of work focused on or form the following countries within East and South East Asia:
- The Philippines
- Hong Kong
This month Stefanie Field reviews Chi Zijian’s The Last Quarter of the Moon, and I interview Iain Maloney. Iain has just seen his first book, First Tome Solo, published in print.
We continue to encourage the submission of creative writing, literature or artwork focused on East or South East Asia. Eastlit welcomes new and non-native writers as much as those more established. All enquiries can be sent to the Eastlit editors.
All of us on the team would also like to thank everyone who has contributed work, given advice, read or supported Eastlit. Without you we would not be where we are today as one of the best read literary journals in Asia.
And I would also like to remind everyone that the first issue of our sister journal Southlit will be out on July 15. Southlit focuses on creative writing and artwork focused on South Asia. Why not take a look at our first issue in a few days time?
