About the edition

Griffith REVIEW 49: New Asia will engage with contemporary Asian conversations, issues from our region, including identity, belonging, politics, economics, environment, culture  and much more. New Asia seeks to identify the region’s new generation of writers who will be the agenda setters and chroniclers of the future, introducing them to readers beyond their national borders. New Asia will be published in association with Asia Literary Review.

Contributor eligibility

Submissions are invited from Asian* writers born in or after 1970. We define Australia as part of Asia. Contributors to this issue are likely to have an impressive publishing record. Submissions must be in English. We accept and encourage quality translations in English from Asian languages. Some work may appear in the online edition in other language.

We define Asia as the region between Pakistan in the west and the Philippines in the east, from Japan in the north to (and including) Australia in the south. Contributors need not necessarily be resident in Asia.
