Cha: An Asian Literary Journal is now calling for submissions for Issue 39, scheduled for publication in March 2018.

Please send in (preferably Asian-themed) poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, reviews, photography & art for consideration. Submission guidelines can be found here. Deadline: 31 December 2017.

B.B.P. Hosmillo (poetry) and Matt Turner (prose) will act as guest editors and read the submissions with the editors Tamara Ho and Jeff Zroback. Please contact Reviews Editor Eddie Tay at if you want to review a book or have a book reviewed in the journal. (Please note that we may be working with a 2-3 issue backlog with reviews.)

Additionally, we are also hosting the poetry contest “Auditory Cortex” for the issue. The contest, which aims to celebrate the various voices across Englishes, welcomes submissions from poets writing in a ‘variety’ of Englishes. Judges are Tamara Ho and phonologist and professor Lian-Hee Wee. Closing date: 28 February 2018. Find out more information here.

We love returning contributors – past contributors are very welcome to send us their new works.
