We are happy to announce that in March 2020 Cha will be publishing a special “Writing Malaysia” issue. Submissions of poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction and art are accepted between 15 October 2019 and 31 December 2019. If you have something original, bizarre, daring or thought-provoking to say about Malaysia, we would like to hear from you. Please note that we can only accept submissions in English or translated into English.

Bernice Chauly (please click HERE for Bernice’s biography) will be reading both the poetry and prose submissions with the co-editors Tamara Ho and Jeff Zroback.

We are also looking for books on or about Malaysia to review in the “Writing Malaysia” issue. We welcome submissions of review copies from publishers, authors and translators. If you have a recent book (2016 – 2019) of any genre about Malaysia you would like reviewed (and has not yet been reviewed in the journal), please write to our reviews editor Eddie Tay at eddie@asiancha.com for further discussion. Note that we will require print copies or pdf proofs no later than 15 November 2019 (the sooner the better) to be considered for use in the issue.

If you would like to propose to review a relevant book, film, art exhibition, or any other cultural production for the “Writing Malaysia” edition, please write to co-editor Tamara Ho at t@asiancha.com with your ideas no later than 30 November 2019 (again, the sooner the better). Please note that the reviewed items can be in Chinese or other languages, so long as the reviews are written in English.

GUIDELINES: If you would like to have your poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, and photography & art considered for Cha’s “Writing Malaysia” issue, please submit your work by email to submissions@asiancha.com. Please include “Writing Malaysia” in the subject line. Submissions to the issue must conform to our guidelines.
