Copyright photographer, Eastlit and Graham Lawrence.The latest lists of popular Asian poetry and fiction in Eastlit are now ready! As usual we are including the most popular Asian poetry and fiction over the last seven and thirty days. And the all time list is updated too. For the first time we are providing direct links to the pieces in this list of popular Asian poetry and fiction to make viewing them easier.

The poems, prose and artwork can be found from the supplied links or by navigating via the links in the top bar or from in our Eastlit archive. Why not also take a look at some of the other poems, prose and artwork too? We all have different tastes, and let’s be honest, quality does not always mean popularity!

The next issue of Eastlit will be out on November 1.

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