Kitaab, which means “book” in many Asian languages, was founded in 2005 by journalist and writer Zafar Anjum in Singapore as a space to celebrate and critique Asia+n writing in English. The revamped website was launched in July 2013 with a much stronger focus.
Kitaab aims to help you avoid information overload which is the curse of the information age. The idea behind Kitaab is to create a link-based information storehouse where the most important stories on Asian writers and writing are carefully curated, so that lovers of Asian writing do not have to look anywhere else for the assorted news and views on their favourite books and writers. All they need to do is to visit Kitaab and quench their literary thirst.
Headquartered in Singapore, Kitaab provides a writing and publishing platform to emerging and seasoned writers from the region to express themselves creatively. Learn more about our publishing and other media programmes here.
Kitaab is only a few years old and it is already being read in many parts of the world. Kitaabwelcomes your feedback, support and contributions.
Kitaab is owned and managed by Kitaab International Pte. Ltd., Singapore.
