Cha: An Asian Literary Journal
Cha is the first and currently only Hong Kong-based online literary quarterly journal dedicated to publishing quality poetry, short stories, creative non-fiction, drama, and reviews written in English, as well as photography and art. It has a strong focus on Asian-themed creative work or work done by Asian writers and artists. It also publishes established and emerging writers/artists from around the world.

The November 2008 issue (first anniversary issue) of Cha has now been launched. Poet, novelist and historian Reid Mitchell generously acted as guest editor and read the submissions with us. The new issue features poetry by former US Poet Laureate Billy Collins and new fiction by Nirmala Pillai. Other writers/artists featured in the issue include Sam Byfield, Grace V. S. Chin, Mike Farman, Tiziano Fratus, Daniel Hudon, Anne Levesque, Vikas Malhotra, Aya Padron, Yves Rubin, Steven Schroeder, Daren Shiau, Gillian Sze, Tai Dong Huai, Eddie Tay, Royston Tester, Toh Hsien Min, Sean Wiebe, Alison Wong, Bo Wong and Jennifer Wong.

Our sixth issue is due out in February 2009. Award-winning Hong Kong poet Arthur Leung will lend us his expertise in the role of guest poetry editor and Reid Mitchell will be guest prose editor. They will both help us select work. If you are interested in having your work considered for publication in Cha, please read our submission guidelines for details.
