Korea Lit is an online short fiction, poetry and art magazine that began in 2016. We publish exceptional short fiction/poetry and showcase art with a common theme. Korea. We publish a new issue monthly.
We are proud to publish the fiction of Korean writers and non-Korean writers who have lived in or experienced an aspect of Korea (even in countries other than North and South Korea). We seek to give new writers a voice and established writers another place to present their work. Our hope is that all the stories published on the pages of Korea Lit will give readers some glimpse of Korean culture, no matter how small. This may come in the form of mystery, romance or even alien invaders.
Thank you for stopping in. We hope you enjoy your time with us. Pull up a seat, enjoy a story and have some kimchi!
If you would like to submit a work of short fiction for consideration, please follow our submission guidelines.
If you would like to submit artwork/photography, please follow our submission guidelines.
