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

“If MĀNOA did not exist, it would have to be invented. I don’t know of any comparable publication, for depth, focus, integrity and consistency, continually exploring in necessary directions, always grounded and notably purposeful.”
Ken Rodgers
