Calling Asian writers

THE EDITOR of an online writing network has called on Asian authors from Manchester to contribute to a new publication.

Farhana Shaikh, the brains behind The Asian Writer, is asking wanna-be writers from Asian communities to submit their work for publication in the network’s first anthology.

Due to be published in October 2010, the publication is based around the theme of ‘Celebration’ and it will be launched at the Everybody’s Reading Festival in Leicester and at the DSC South Asian Literature Festival 2010 in London.

Speaking to Manchester Mouth about why she decided to set up The Asian Writer, Shaikh said: “The Asian Writer was set up to support and champion British Asian writers.”
