Poem in Cha: An Asian Literary Journal

Cha, based in Hongkong, has just published my poem "Razminovenie, or Nonmeeting" in its sixth issue. The announcement from editors Tammy Ho and Jeff Zroback:

We are pleased to announce that the sixth issue of Cha: An Asian Literary Journal has now been launched. It features work by Inara Cedrins, Ching-In Chen, Kevin Hsu, Shara K. Johnson, Jee Leong Koh, Franky Lau, Jason Lee, Yew Leong Lee, Joey Li, Blair Reeve, Gillian Sze, Eddie Tay, Phoebe Tsang, Brian Urtz, Nicole Wong, Bryan Thao Worra, Xu Xi and Yuan Qiongqiong.

We would like to thank our guest editors for their efforts. Award-winning Hong Kong poet Arthur Leung generously lent us his time and expertise to help us read the poetry. Historian, writer and Cha regular Reid Mitchell provided feedback on the prose.

We would also like to let you know that Singapore-born poet and academic Eddie Tay has agreed to serve as our in-house book reviewer. Eddie has already written several excellent reviews for our journal, and we are excited that he will be joining us in an official capacity. If you have a book you would like reviewed or if you would like to submit a review yourself, please email Eddie at

Finally, our seventh issue is due out in May of this year. We are happy to announce that writer Royston Tester has agreed to help us read the submissions. The deadline for submissions is 1 April 2009. If you have a piece you think would be right for Cha, please do not hesitate to submit.
