My article in Rambutan Literary

My article about the fascination of Yangon's old downtown was published in the first online issue of Rambutan Literary.

Do Nguyen Mai, the Editor-in-Chief says about this online magazine: "the lack of Asian literature and art in general has always felt othering to me — however, in an already undiverse creative scene, the lack of prominent Southeast Asian creatives within the Asian literary community struck me as a reflection of not only the alienation of Southeast Asians from dominant Western society, but also the alienation of Southeast Asians from an Asian community so influenced by East Asian culture. With the creation of Rambutan Literary, I hoped to help fill the gaps previously disallowed Southeast Asian creatives."
