about the magazine
THE 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 Writers welcome.
Besides the biographical introductions to contributing poets, writers, translators and artists written by editor N.Saomai published in the issues and in the “TWP Biographical Database”, The Writers Post includes an alphabetical listing “Vietnamese Poets and Writers Abroad” which provides useful factual biographical information on almost Vietnamese authors living in the US, and throughout the world.
