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.
Two guest editors helped put the issue together. 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.
Starting from the seventh issue, Hong Kong-based poet and academic Eddie Tay will 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. To find out where to send review copies or to submit a review to Cha, please email Eddie at email@example.com
Our seventh issue is due out in May of this year. We are happy to announce that writer Bob Bradshaw has agreed to act as guest editor. Submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline is April 1st, 2009.
