I just got word from Editors-in-Chief, Gerald Maa and Lawrence-Minh Bùi Davis that The Asian American Literary Review’s new winter/spring 2011 issue is now available for purchase.

The Asian American Literary Review (AALR) is a space for writers who consider the designation “Asian American” a fruitful starting point for artistic vision and community. In showcasing the work of established and emerging writers, the journal aims to incubate dialogues and open those dialogues to regional, national, and international audiences of all constituencies. Anyone interested in ordering a single issue ($12) or a 1 year subscription ($20 for 2 issues) can go directly to www.aalrmag.org/subscribe/.
