Grace Heejung Kim's beautiful cover for April Magazine

Submissions are Open

Do you have a story to share that would fit our themes? Read on!


“Read” — We love books of all kinds and we especially love to share books written by Asian woman authors around the world. Have you read a book that touched you, a book that made you go ‘hmmm’, or even just an indulgent romance that made your cold autumn evening that much cozier? Share the love, or even write a review: this is the place for it.

“Watch” — Video changed the movie star and the films coming to screens big and small are changing–and we are cheering that change. We celebrate videos that headline or feature noteworthy Asian women characters. Whether a local YouTube phenomenon or an earth-shaking blockbuster, let’s see what’s happening.

“Listen” — Asian women got talent. We know that. You know that. Let’s share the best music and podcasts by Asian women around the world. Sure, we’re an English-language magazine, but the sound of music transcends languages and can unite us all. From your ears to ours and beyond: we’re hear to stay (sorry for the pun).

“Brand” — Brands and businesses make the world go round, and the ones we want to raise up are those that speak to us. Great brands for and by Asian women are changing Asia and the world. We give them the spotlight they deserve.

“Travel” — Travel broadens the horizons and enriches our lives, and we cover the city itineraries (with our series Perfect Day) and the best of world events for the modern Asian woman. Do you have a city you want to share? An event you can’t forget? This is the place for it.

Contemporary Issues

“Asia” — Asian women are rising to prominence, and so are the social, political, and economic issues that concern them in Asia. We highlight regional voices and local stories, because we are in this together.

“Global” — We’re not just Asian women, we’re citizens of the world: whether traveling, studying, or working, we live around the world, so we showcase the social issues and stories that affect Asian women around the world, outside of Asia, too.


“Now” — We are thrilled to see the stories of the remarkable Asian women of our time. We share inspiring interviews and personal profiles, one at a time. Because we are this Asian woman, here, today. Now.

“History” — We introduce the awesome, badass Asian women of history. Do you know a lady whose story deserves to be shared? This is where we remember that we’ve always been here, making the world happen.

If your story fits, please introduce yourself with a CV (or a proper social media link), writing samples and story ideas at
