Exploring the Power of the Pen

**You were guest editor of the quarterly online literary journal [Cha](http://asiancha.com"Cha"). What was that like?**
A huge eye-opener into the range and diversity of writing in Asia. When you are a “guest,” not born in Asia, and are on a truly international team, the process of selecting work feels heightened. You wish to be fair and judicious and not ignorant of cultural nuances that may fall beyond your ken. In fact you want to spot those textures and how successfully art is rendered within them.
**How did Cha get started?**
Tammy Ho and Jeff Zroback started Cha in the summer of 2007. They knew that there is a strong English-language writing community throughout the continent, which is often sadly underestimated and overlooked.
**What kind of stories does Cha run? Do they take unsolicited admissions?**
Cha publishes fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry, book reviews, and photography and art from and about Asia. The journal gets pieces by local writers who write in English, as well as works by Westerners who have spent time in Asia. Cha runs a lot of works by writers of Asian heritage who have either emigrated to the West or grown up there. Cha is eager to get submissions from writers on the mainland, so if anyone is interested in sending Cha something, the editors would be happy to take a look.
