In August 1967, ASEAN began as a collective of five countries. Now ten strong, it celebrates 50 years in 2017. We invite writers from across the region to share their perspectives on literary life in Southeast Asia, and to question whether half a century of the alliance has given rise to an ASEAN identity.
