Southlit Logo: Creative Writing focused on South AsiaSouthlit has now been integrated with its far larger sister journal Eastlit. It now appears as a supplement in every monthly issue of Eastlit. Writing goes through the same editorial board. This means we can ensure better quality. We can also guarantee a far higher readership for the writers and poets we publish. We think this means better service.

All links on this site have now been updated so that submissions and enquiries go to the right places.

Southlit is a journal and network of supporting sites focused on creative writing, literature and art from or connected to South Asia. It started as the idea of the Eastlit team and a sister journal to the East and Southeast Asian literary journal.

While Eastlit concentrates on English literature and art from East and Southeast Asia, Southlit is dedicated to the important and rising region of South Asia. The journal of South Asian Literature and artwork has now been replaced by the regular Southlit Supplement. It appears in each issue of Eastlit. The original journal was aimed at art and writing focused on the following countries:

  • India.
  • Pakistan.
  • Bangladesh.
  • Nepal.
  • The Maldives.
  • Bhutan.
  • SriLanka.
  • Afghanistan.
  • Iran.

We are now calling for submissions in the following categories:

  • Poetry.
  • Fiction.
  • Non-Fiction.
  • Translations.
  • Reviews.
  • Photographs or other pieces of artwork.

Please check our submission guidelines before submitting. Please send submissions to South Asian literary submissions.

If anyone is interested in being involved in any of the following, please contact Graham. We are seeking additional members for the expanded editorial board. We could also do with a couple more for my own Southlit advisory panel. And finally if anyone has a proposal for a regular column, let us know.

Oh and if you like our idea, please like, share and follow! There are like and sharing buttons at the bottom of this page. There are round button follow links below these.
