ASYMPTOTE Indiegogo Fundraiser

After being nominated for Magazine of the Year by 3:am, alongside The Times Literary Supplement, and pulling off a global launch--8 events in 7 countries--to celebrate our 2nd anniversary, just this January,

and more recently, after having added 10 new editors-at-large from Argentina to Kenya to Central Asia to extend its network even more, and so that it can bring even more diverse work to English readers,

 What We Do
Asymptote is a free online journal dedicated to bringing together the best in contemporary literature. Our mission is simple: to unlock the literary treasures of the world. To date, we‘ve published authors working in 54 languages.

We take our mission of introducing these amazing writers to readers so seriously that, apart from hosting work in all the usual genres (including visual art and drama), we even have a special section for essays in which overlooked non-English writers are concisely... MORE HERE!!!
