I have been waiting anxiously for this literary journal to open online. To my literary friends – submissions are open!
The first issue of Junoesq Literary Journal, founded by poet, editor, and 2011-2012 national NAC-NTU Writer-in-Residence at Nanyang Technological University, Grace Chia, is now live!
The Singapore-based quarterly online journal features poetry, fiction, and nonfiction that celebrates the female experience and its expression. “It is a dedicated space for diverse and unique voices intersecting literature, culture and art in all forms, from the literary to the feminist, the experimental to the autobiographical, the anthropological to the confessional, the academic to the domestic,” writes Chia.
Issue 1 must-reads include: three poems each by Grace Chua and Jasmine Ann Cooray; excerpts from two novels (Kaurava: The Aryavarta Chronicles Book 2 and A Certain Exposure) and interviews with the novelists, Krishna Udayasankar and Jolene Tan, respectfully; and an essay, “My Grandmother’s Story,” by Yu-Mei Balasingamchow*.
