Thanks for your interest in MĀNOA. Our volumes concentrate on writing from particular countries, language groups, regions, and the like—primarily in Asia and the Pacific, and predominantly in translation. Work in MĀNOA is therefore selected for us by guest editors and translators. Unfortunately, we can’t consider any new work for the foreseeable future.


“To enter each issue of MĀNOA is to enter a world full of startling human experience and thoughtfulness and to share in the emotion and language necessary to reveal it.”
Marjorie Edel

“The editors of MĀNOA have achieved a publication that manages to be rooted in a real locality without being provincial, to present work of distinction without being predictable, and to maintain vitality and surprise without being trendy.”
W.S. Merwin
