About

MaLa, the publication, is driven by the members of the Chengdu Bookworm Writing Group and exists to promote new writers and new English-language writing in China and beyond. The aim is to regularly publish poetry, short fiction, literary non-fiction and work in translation – supported by graphic art and photography – that is alive, stimulates, explores. Aside from the writing group pieces we present work from several critically acclaimed, award-winning authors who have given talks in The Bookworm or who have strong connections with our venues in Chengdu, Beijing or Suzhou.
