Asian Literature Project “YOMU”

In the time of COVID-19 pandemic, when the world and our daily lives have drastically changed, what are the thoughts of Asian authors and what are they writing about? The Asian Literature Project “YOMU” (meaning “read”) is now underway, spinning the stories of daily lives of people in Asia—their joys, hardships and resilience—through the eyes of authors in respective countries.

In collaboration with emerging writers in Southeast Asia and India, this project will feature their new literary works in English, Japanese and local languages of their own together with feature stories and reports which illustrate diversity and vigor of reading culture in each country that richly reflects the present state of its society and culture.

The 4 writers from Malaysia joining this project are Nadia Khan, Terence Toh, Li Zi Shu and M. Navin. Stay tuned for the release of their short stories at www.jfkl.org.my
