New Asian Writing Short Story Anthology

Press Release

New Asian Writing Short Story Anthology is aiming to help gifted, aspiring authors to become known worldwide and to discover tomorrow’s literary talents.

New Asian Writing (NAW) is inviting short stories by writers from any country in the world to be selected by an experienced panel of writers and published in a yearly anthology.

The overarching theme of the short story anthology is: All About Asia.

Selected stories will be posted on our website. An anthology consisting of the selected stories will be published at the end of the year.

All writers of short fiction are encouraged to submit to the 2010 New Asian Writing Short Story Anthology, regardless of nationality or location. There is no age requirement. We accept all genres.

Short stories must be written in English, as it is one of the world’s major languages. As it is an “Asian writing” anthology, the stories must be about all things Asian. This means that either the setting of the short story is in an Asian country, or the main character is Asian, or the short story deals with aspects of any Asian culture, etc.

    I don’t suppose they will accept a short story in Thai, will they? Otherwise I might submit my Chekhov-esque stories for the competition.

    So, what if that person is some sort of Chekhov of Thailand, but he or she cannot compose in English. Is it ok to ask someone to translate the story into English for that person before submitting it to the competition?

    Yes, it’s okay to have your work translated, but please mention the translator’s name and the language it was translated from. Basically, all credits must be acknowledged.
