To Leave an Imprint in Written Word and to Light a Candle in the Dark



Words, they say are the best defence. Or perhaps, the best offence. It need not be said the impact of words in society be it printed, published, written or blatantly uttered to the comprehension of others. There are writers who do not conform to the more commercial of society, this is for you. For those who enjoy the written word and would love to share, this is for you. For the fictional writer and those who seek a place to improve, this is for you. For Malaysia and the world, and humanity. This is for you. Share...

News and Updates!!

Hey everyone!!!

Kayu Api is back!!! Sorry for the lack of updates recently. We have been really busy the past 2 months. Here is a post from the Asia and Pacific Writers Network (www.apwn.net) plus some information on the Asia Literary Review.

__________________________________________________________________________________________________
Asia Literary Review is now on sale in the US, having arrived on the shelves of 250 Barnes & Noble stores across North America in May.

“Early indications are that sales are strong,” Editor-in-Chief Chris Wood said. “The success of ALR over the past 18 months demonstrates that the eyes of the literary world are turned towards Asia. ALR has gone from strength to strength in a little over a year and is on sale throughout much of Asia and the Subcontinent, in the UK, Europe, Australia and Canada, and now America. It’s a great place for Asian writers and those writing on Asia to showcase their work, and of course to get paid for their efforts.”

With legendary former Granta Editor Ian Jack as Executive Editor and Harvard Review Fiction Editor Nam Le, author of last year’s acclaimed debute short story collection, The Boat, as a contributing editor, Asia Literary Review is fast making a name for itself in the literary world.

The Hong Kong based journal is described as the first magazine of its kind in the Asian literary world - an exciting English language quarterly devoted to reportage, documentary photography, travel writing, fiction and memoir, set to become essential reading around the world for anyone with a serious interest in Asia and the best writing from and about the region. Each issue features the work of celebrated and established writers alongside new voices from Karachi to Beijing.
