The Asian Writers Project showcases the very best of Brit Asian Literature

The Asian Writers Project (TAWP) is a new and exciting project from The Publishing Jar. The project aims that by providing a platform to promote Asian writers and their work it will inspire the next generation of British Asian writers.

Each month our website will feature the very best of Brit Asian Literature; the authors and their books. Our regular features will include forthcoming events, opportunities, prizes and information on creative writing courses. As well as the latest news, resources and the links that no writer should be without.

This month TAWP speaks to Mohsin Hamid about his personal journey as a writer. The author of Moth Smoke and most recently, The Reluctant Fundamentalist, offers a fabulous insight into living life as a writer in the modern age. Priya Basil talks to us about Ishq and Mushq, her brilliant debut novel. We catch up with Imran Ahmad to discuss Unimagined, the story about his life growing up in the West. We also take a closer look at Bitter Sweets, which was shortlisted for the Orange Award for New Writers 2007 and is being published in paperback this month.

Submissions from new and emerging writers are now being invited to feature on the website next month. You can visit
