Our current projects include:
The Asian Writer
The Asian Writer is the voice of British Asian writing and is for readers and writers interested in South Asian literature. It is both the online magazine and quarterly newsletter. It aims to provide a platform for new and emerging writers of South Asian origin as well as showcase their work.
The Asian Writer offers readers an eclectic approach to South Asian writing through profile interviews, Q&A’s, and reviews. It features the latest news, original comment and thoughts on contemporary South Asian literature and publishing as well as practical advice and inspiration.

Leicester Writes is a literature development project. We aim to support local writers and champion their work. We provide access to a number of regular networking opportunities and host an annual literature festival to bring writers and readers together. We offer support and advice to early career writers. Our website offers local writers the opportunity to showcase their writing and find useful information to help them develop their craft.

Short Story September
Short Story September is an exciting new initiative from Dahlia Publishing. Our aim is to celebrate the short story form and encourage everyone to have a go at writing a short story while raising the profile of writers with published collections. The project consists of a dedicated blog that seeks to platform short story writers and inspire writers through a daily prompt and writing resources.
