We would also like to point out that we are continuing to build our Reviews section under the leadership of our Reviews Editor Eddie Tay. If you have a book you would like reviewed or you would like to review a book, please contact Eddie at You may also wish to follow us on Twitter @asiancha, where we send updates about literary news from Asia and the rest of the world. Cha is still looking for “Lost Teas” to publish. These are previously published works which appeared in journals which have now folded. If you have a piece that is now lost but you would like it to be re-found, please read our submission guidelines and send it along to

Finally, our second anniversary issue is due out in November of this year. We are very happy to announce that once again, poet, novelist and historian Reid Mitchell will lend us his expertise in the role of guest poetry editor and Jonathan Mendelsohn will be guest prose editor. The deadline for submissions is October 1st. If you have a piece you think would be right for Cha, please do not hesitate to submit.

We hope that you enjoy the new issue.
