A couple of days ago I received my copy of the new Pratik, a fine, diverse journal of poetry, fiction, and art edited in Nepal by Yuyutsu RD Sharma. Pratik reminds us just how insular too many U.S. literary journals have become. It reminds me of Robert Bly‘s spirited magazine The Fifties (later The Sixties, The Seventies, and The Thousands), though Pratik embraces a wider range of genres.
Founded by Nepalese poet, Hari Adhikary and edited by Yuyutsu RD Sharma, Pratik is a purely non-profit literary publication and is published by White Lotus Book Shop, Kathmandu, for Mrs. Prabha Adhikary.
Copies in the U.S. are available most easily through Amazon.
Pratik is published quarterly and welcomes contributions of poetry, fiction, essays, book reviews, and translations. Submit to Pratik Magazine (email@example.com) with a cc to White Lotus Book Shop (firstname.lastname@example.org).
