New Lit on the Block :: Asian American Literary Review

Published May 12, 2010 Posted by
Under the editorship of Lawrence-Minh Bùi Davis and Gerald Maa, the Asian American Literary Review is "a space for writers who consider the designation 'Asian American' a fruitful starting point for artistic vision and community." In addition to their twice yearly print journal, AALR will publish an online feature entitled "Dear John Okada." This monthly web exclusive "features an open letter to John Okada, Carlos Bulosan, Siu Sin Far — the shades of Asian American literature past—regarding the state of Asian American literature today." The first of these installments features a letter to Agha Shahid Ali from Dilruba Ahmed.

The Spring 2010 issue of AALR is available now and features poetry by Cathy Song, Oliver de la Paz, Paisley Rekdal, April Naoko Heck, Mong-Lan, Eugene Gloria, Nick Carbó, and David Woo; an interview by Kandice Chuh with Karen Tei Yamashita; prose by Ed Lin, Marie Mutsuki Mockett, Sonya Chung, Hasanthika Sirasena, David Mura, Gary Pak, and Brian Ascalon Roley; book reviews and a forum with David Mura, Ru Freeman and Alexander Chee.

AALR reads submissions from June 1 - September 1. Their first two issues are already closed, so any submissions sent in will be considered for publication in 2011.
