Editorial Focus

The Asian American Literary Review is a space for those who consider the designation "Asian American" a fruitful starting point for artistic vision and community. In showcasing the work of established and emerging writers, the journal aims to incubate dialogues and, just as importantly, open those dialogues to regional, national, and international audiences of all constituencies. Published biannually, AALR features fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, translations, comic art, interviews, and book reviews.

Simultaneous submissions are okay, but please indicate if you are submitting the same work elsewhere, and please notify us immediately if you place it elsewhere. Please submit work as a Microsoft Word compatible document attachment. Title the document in the following fashion: last name, first name, genre, title (e.g. Far.SuiSin.Fiction.IntheLandoftheFree). Include a brief biographical note with your query letter. Previously unpublished material only. Standard response time is 4-6 weeks, but please bear with us if we take longer to reply. Please limit submissions to 1 per calendar year.
