CHA Issue #20 Goes Live


The March 2013 issue of Cha is now available. We want to thank guest editors Marc Vincenz (poetry) and Kaitlin Solimine (prose) for reading the submissions with us. We would also like to thank Eddie Tay for another fine selection of book reviews and Andrew Barker for reading the pieces for the “Betrayal” Poetry Contest. A launch reading was held on 7 March by guest editors Kaitlin and Marc. The event was co-hosted by the Fairbank Center for Chinese Studies at Harvard University. 

We would also like to take this opportunity to report that Cha was mentioned in India’s Sunday Guardian and three pieces previously published in the journal were named finalists in Best of the Net 2012
