Announcement: Collaboration with Voice & Verse Poetry Magazine

We are very happy to announce that selected poems from the ten-year history of Cha: An Asian Literary Journal (2007-2017) will be included in a special section in the December 2017 issue of the Hong Kong-based print poetry magazine, Voice & Verse. This collaboration, the first of its kind, celebrates the ten-year anniversary of Cha.
