Popular Eastern Writing: Eastlit January 2015 Cover. Picture: Seattle Asiatown Temple by Allen Forrest. Cover design by Graham Lawrence. Copyright photographer, Eastlit and Graham Lawrence.These are the new lists of popular Eastern writing found in Eastlit. Apologies for being a little later than normal. We continue to include the most popular Asian fiction, poetry, artwork and non-fiction of the past seven and thirty days. The all time list of popular Eastern writing has also been updated too. By popular request, we continue to provide direct links to each piece in our lists.

All of this popular Eastern writing and artwork can be navigated to from the links on the page or by making use of the links in the top bar. You can use the Eastlit archive. It will also give you another opportunity to read some of the less popular pieces. As we all know popular does not always mean best!

The second 2015 issue of Eastlit will be out around the end of January or start of February.

Please note that we have a policy of excluding all the covers, content pages, contributor lists etc from these statistics.
