Deadline: February 19, 2018
Max. word length: 4,000 words as a rough guideline. We do make exceptions. Korean Women Grab Back. This issue will showcase fiction by Korean women authors, including those from diaspora communities who write in languages other than Korean. As in so many countries, the canon of modern Korean literature has long been dominated by men. However, Korea's extraordinary flourishing of contemporary writing has been led by women, who frequently dominate domestic prize lists and have had the biggest success abroad. Featuring writing by women which foregrounds female experience in the fullest sense of the term – aware that there are no issues, political, societal, artistic or philosophical, that are not also women's issues – we aim to show how Korean women are 'grabbing back' the canon and writing themselves into literary history.
