Connecting Asian writers with global readers


Dear Reader, please help us serve you better!

Kitaab, which means “book” in many Asian languages, was founded in 2005 by journalist and writer Zafar Anjum in Singapore as a space to celebrate and critique Asian writing in English. The revamped website, along with a publishing programme, was launched in 2013 with a much stronger focus.

Today, Kitaab is dedicated to connecting Asian writers with readers across the world and giving new voices an opportunity to express themselves on a credible platform.

We believe that literature builds bridges, opens our hearts to others and widens our mental and emotional horizons. But given the challenges associated with running a website and a literary publishing organisation, we need your solid support.
