Mekong Review is a literary magazine from Southeast Asia. Every quarter, it publishes book reviews, essays, interviews, profiles, poetry and fiction from Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, the Philippines and beyond.
Mekong Review was launched at the Kampot Writers and Readers Festival in Cambodia in November 2015. Our ambition was to publish a magazine that would bring the region’s literary and intellectual life to a broader audience. Today it’s available in the major cities of Southeast Asia, Australia and the United States.
An independent publication, the magazine has no political, institutional or commercial affiliations.
