Cha in South China Morning Post

A big congratulations to the editors of Cha who were featured in the South China Morning Post in Hong Kong. It's always wonderful to see them getting coverage, because they've worked really hard to create a fine space for poetry, art and literature overseas, something that's ridiculously difficult anywhere in the world.

One of my favorite poems that I've written, Zelkova Tree, first appeared in Cha's premiere issue. Cha holds the distinction of the first Hong Kong-based online quarterly journal dedicated to publishing quality literature and reviews written in English, and photography and art. They've been generously open to publishing the work of established and emerging writers/artists from around the world. This month's cover is particularly beautiful and I'm glad they're continuing to hold themselves to very high standards.

The Kartika Review has also put out a new issue, with some great work in it, including a few poems of mine, as well as work by Barbara Jane Reyes and an interview with Ed Lin, who has a great new book out. And finally, The Lantern Review is also up and posting some fun posts now, and I expect that they will become another great journal to submit work to in the future.
