A Double Literary Celebration! Joint launch of Cha: An Asian Literary Journal and Small Anchor Press and Dashan’s first bilingual chapbook series
Join us tonight to explore two great new Asian literary projects. Cha is an online literary journal collating fiction, poetry, reviews, non fiction prose and photographs from across Asia. Its brand new edition, guest edited by Royston Tester is available NOW at http://www.asiancha.com/. Royston joins us tonight for an informal launch of the new edition. Drop by to say hello, to hear more about the Cha project and to learn how you can submit work to be considered for Cha‘s Winter 2009 edition.
In our Double Literary Celebration tonight, we’re also very pleased to present a brand new series of bilingual chapbooks, co-produced by Small Anchor Press and Dashan International, an organisation set up in Sichuan in the wake of last year’s earthquake, to create sustainable economic development opportunities in the area. Tonight Jen Hyde of Small Anchor Press, and some of the collections’ featured writers, will be on hand to discuss the project.
