About

The Bangkok Literary Review is a literature and art journal, in print and online, featuring contemporary Thai prose and poetry in translation and contemporary Thai art.

It was formed in June 2018 (after many years of thinking about it) to help bring contemporary Thai literature to an international readership.

The Bangkok Literary Review is committed to publishing the best of contemporary Thai writing in a beautifully made print magazine illustrated by contemporary illustrators and artists from Thailand.

Our aim, in the long term, is to create a dynamic, supportive literary community to help Thai writers and translators bridge the gap between Thailand and the international literary world.
