bengal lights is a literary journal published from dhaka, bangladesh. our tastes are cosmopolitan: no location, no writer, no genre is off-limits. we welcome all writers: established or beginning, grizzled veterans or fresh-faced newbies, versed in the classics or cyber-narratives. we also seek to publish quality writing from bangladesh and south asia, but above all we seek to be engaged, to be a bazaar where all genres can mingle and multiply. we want you. write to us, talk to us, feel free to rant or rave, send a poem or the old-fashioned travelogue. we would be as pleased to publish a vintage but well-crafted story about true love as to rumble with a graphic novel about life in the rough lanes of dhaka, detroit or dar-es-salaam. we seek writing that reflects the spirit and diverse voices of bangladesh and the rest of south asia. we also want expressive writing from the wider world beyond it. we are searching for fresh voices and new talent. we seek to forge literary connections between bangladesh and the wider world.
