KESHIKI was our first line of publications. It was a unique collaboration between University of East Anglia, Writers' Centre Norwich, and Norwich University of the Arts, funded by The Nippon Foundation.
Not dissimilar to Yoko Tawada's short story, Time Differences - which forms part of this exciting series - KESHIKI featured an editorial team spanning three continents and time zones, linking together New York, Tokyo, and Norwich, UNESCO City of Literature.
The excellent design work was provided by Norwich University of the Arts, as part of a dedicated research project.
This was a truly global collaboration; an international effort to bring you some of the most exciting short fiction being written in Japan today.
When so much in our world and in our culture is working to divide us, KESHIKI - meaning landscape, view, or vista - is a celebration of co-operation; of collaboration, creativity, and cultural exchange, in addition to literary excellence.
The project was made possible by generous funding from the Nippon Foundation.
