about the magazine
WRITERS POST is an electronic magazine of
literature and literature in translation, published biannually. Its aim is
simply to provide the reader with good reading, the writer with a place
perhaps more easily accessible to publish his/ her work. The reader is
introduced to a magazine where selected pieces of literature by published
authors of diverse origin, and new writers as well, are presented. Fine or
remarkable writings that non-English language literature produced may be
found in the LITERATURE IN TRANSLATION Section. The aim of this section is to
introduce to English-speaking readers some writings of non-English speaking
writers, among their considerable literary works written
in a language other than English, of common or of
lesser currency yet worthy of notice, published in
their countries and abroad. As for Vietnamese literature, the section was
previously associated with Tap-chi
Song-van, a magazine of literature and art (ISSN: 1089-8123,
established 1996 under the same ownership and editorship of The Writers
Post’s editor N. Saomai / Nguyen Sao Mai, now in a period of discontinuity).
Works here featured could either be the translations of short stories and
poems of which the original versions were first published in Tap-chi
Song-Van, or the translations of short stories and poems the original
versions published in other established Vietnamese-language literary
magazines, poetry or story collections, anthologies etc… submitted to The
Writers Post by the author or translator. Chosen literary works originally
written in English, in a variety of genres from prose to verse, will be in
the ENGLISH LITERATURE Section presented. Contributions of fiction, poetry,
and essays on literature and art are invited. The Writers Post also makes new
Besides the biographical introductions to contributing poets, writers,
