This archival version of AsianVoices features over 200 poems, stories and articles by young Asian poets and writers. AsianVoices was a website for young Asian writers that I managed from 1997 to 2004. The contributors included writers living in Asia as well Asians living abroad. The poems, stories, articles and plays are categorized according to themes like family, love, death, travel and spirituality. Click one of the following links and start exploring:
Poetry, fiction and creative non-fiction about family
Poems and stories about love and heartbreak
Delicious poems and stories in celebration of food
Poetry and prose about death and remembrance
Poems and stories about innocence and experience
Poems and stories about self-reflection and spirituality
Poems, stories and articles about school life and education

Poems and articles about places
Poems, stories and drama about the creative process
Poetry, prose and drama about everyday life
Poems and stories by and/or for younger readers
If you are interested in reading newer work or if you are a writer interested in publishing your work, I would suggest submitting your poems or stories to a new Asian writing site such as (AsianCha) or The Asian Writer.
The AsianVoices site started as an online publication for my students at City University. The site then soon opened up to contributions from other young writers in Hong Kong before blossoming into a pan-Asian site. If you would like to find out more about the development of the site, you can go to: longzijun.wordpress.com/projects/asianvoices/
I would like to thank all the contributors for their participation in the AsianVoices experience. I received a lot of pleasure and inspiration from reading their poetry and fiction.
