New Asian Writing (NAW) is a literary community dedicated to publishing quality fiction and non-fiction with an Asian theme.
The New Asian Writing project was started at the beginning of 2010 as a Bangkok based press.
It is now being run by a team of editors based in India, UK and Ireland.
For more than two years, it accepted only short stories which were later collected in two anthologies.
Starting July 2012, New Asian Writing has decided to incorporate in its online platform other forms of writing too. As we grow and secure a steady stream of readership, we will add more features to our website.
Disclaimer– New Asian Writing and its editors do not (and cannot) approve or vet the views/opinions expressed in a particular story. The views are entirely the author’s and New Asian Writing cannot be held liable for the same. Please keep in mind that cultural values and sentiments vary from region to region and these stories cover the entire Asian region. Consider a story holistically and not in parts. Please also remember that it is only fiction and a product of the author’s imagination.
Some stories are intended at an adult audience. If you are not of legal age (as per your country’s laws) or consider such material inappropriate, please do not read and leave the website now.
Book Review Policy
New Asian Writing will accept review requests in the adult fiction and non fiction genres including Romance, YA, Historical, Autobiography/Biography, Self-Help Steampunk, SciFi Romance, Paranormal and Urban Fantasy genres. We accept review copies from publishers and from requesting authors.
New Asian Writing does not accept self published books for reviews unless we buy them ourselves.
Whilst we do our best to review books in a timely manner, in some cases, there might be a delay. Backlogs are cleared at the end of each month. Also, please be aware that we do not accept every review request.
Reviews are independent and may not be sugar coated as per your requirement. New Asian Writing critiques the work and not the author so if you cannot handle a bit of criticism, do not send us a copy.
Books are given a rating of 1-5 with five being the highest possible score. A ‘DNF’ means the book did not generate sufficient interest and we were not able to finish it.
For sending a review request, please mail a book blurb/synopsis along with author profile to firstname.lastname@example.org
