Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
Launched in 1989, MĀNOA brings the literature of Asia, the Pacific, and the Americas to English-speaking readers. To date, the journal has published over sixty issues, about 10,000 pages, and over 1,200 writers, translators, reviewers, and editors. Twice a year, MĀNOA presents outstanding contemporary writing — often in new translations — from throughout the region. Past volumes have featured new work from such places as the People’s Republic of China, Tibet, Nepal, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, Okinawa, Viet Nam, Indonesia, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, New Zealand, Australia, Cambodia, French Polynesia, the Pacific Islands, India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh, as well as Canada, Mexico, and South America. Works in MĀNOA have been cited for excellence by the editors of such anthologies as Best American Short Stories, Best American Poetry, Best American Essays, Prize Stories: The O. Henry Awards, and Pushcart Prize. MĀNOA has also received national awards for its design and editorial excellence. MĀNOA, meaning ‘vast and deep’ in Hawaiian, is the name of the valley in which the University of Hawai‘i and MĀNOA’s Editorial office are located.

Submissions Policy
MĀNOA issues concentrate on writing from particular countries, language groups, regions, and the like—primarily in Asia and the Pacific, and predominantly in translation. Work in MĀNOA is therefore selected by the editor, guest editors, and translators.
