About us

Forty-Eight Review is an online literary magazine that strives to feature the works of Asian writers of all ages around the world. We believe in the power of words and its ability to bring people together, aiming to increase Asian representation in media. Our mission is to celebrate Asia’s diversity through literature. Following our belief that everybody should be able to see themselves as the hero of their own story, we are strong advocates for diversity in fiction and other forms of media. 

Our magazine features and supports Asian writers. Not all works of writing must be non-fiction – we welcome any genre!

See submissions for deadlines and to learn how to submit your work. Young writers are especially encouraged to submit their work. Our magazine is published every two months.
