We are very pleased to announce that in April 2019 Cha will be publishing a special “Writing Macau” issue. Submissions of poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction and art are accepted between 1 October 2018 and 31 December 2018. If you have something original, interesting or thought-provoking to say about Macau, we would like to hear from you. Please note that we can only accept submissions in English or translated into English.

Un Sio San (poetry) and Hélder Beja (prose) will be reading the submissions with the co-editors Tamara Ho and Jeff Zroback.

We are also looking for books on or about Macau to review in the “Writing Macau” issue. We welcome submissions of review copies from publishers, authors and translators. If you have a recent book (2015 – 2017/8) of any genre about Macau you would like reviewed (and has not yet been reviewed in the journal), please write to our reviews editor Eddie Tay at for further discussion. Note that we will require print copies or pdf proofs no later than 15 January 2019 (the sooner the better) to be considered for use in the issue.
