Pathlight Magazine Launches Highlighting the Best New Chinese Writing

Posted: December 22nd, 2011 | No Comments »

A well deserved plug for the new Pathlight Magazine that’s bringing out more contemporary Chinese fiction and writing in English – details all as below – well worth supporting though like all Chinese government ventures the promotion may leave a bit to be desired so it’s needs to be shouted from the rooftops as so often with these things – good folk involved though.

Pathlight magazine is a new English-language literary magazine produced by Paper Republic and People’s Literature Magazine (《人民文学》杂志社). It is currently in trial publication period—the first issue came out on November 20, and the second issue will be published in advance of the 2012 London Book Fair, where China will be the Market Focus.

Distribution is currently limited, though the first issue can be purchased on Amazon—they will deliver internationally. For specific inquiries, please contact Pathlight Managing Editor Alice Xin Liu at alicexinliu@paper-republic.org.
