Twice a year, Manoa: A Pacific Journal of International Writing publishes volumes that present outstanding contemporary writing—often in translation—from authors in Asia, the Pacific, and the Americas, focusing in particular on voices that are not well-known in the English-speaking world. Past volumes have featured new work from such places as the People’s Republic of China, Tibet, Nepal, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, Okinawa, Viet Nam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Papua New Guinea, New Zealand, Australia, French Polynesia, India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh—as well as work from Canada, Mexico, South America, the Russian Far East, and the Pacific Northwest.
Works in MĀNOA have been cited for excellence by the editors of such prize anthologies as Best American Short Stories, Best American Poetry, Best American Essays, Prize Stories: The O. Henry Awards, and Pushcart Prize. Manoa has also received national awards for its design and editorial excellence.
