Call for Stories: Tell Us About Your Southeast Asian Publishing Business

In Discussion by Edward Nawotka

By Edward Nawotka, Editor-in-Chief

Today’s feature story looks at the booming book market in Malaysia and finds award-winning multicultural publishers, growing readership, a hot rights scene, and innovative digital projects. Home to more than 1/3 of the population of the globe, Southeast Asia is an enormous potential market for Western publishers, but remains a mystery. Are you running a publishing business in Southeast Asia? Involved in a new digital start up? Looking to make connections with the West? Tell us about yourself. We’re looking for the best publishing stories the region has to offer. Introduce yourself by email (Indian e-book conversion houses need not apply) or leave a note in the comments.
