Qissa Bazaar brings together the communities of South Asia– Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan,  India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka– in the mediums of literature and journalism. The goal is to promote unity and showcase talent of the region. All the pieces published have some connection to South Asia.


There are many mediums of expression--literature, photography, investigative pieces, poetry, analysis,--that can be showcased from South Asia. We believe that the sub-continent has a variety of religions, cultures and society that have great history attached to it. We want to show the talent that comes from South Asian writers, artist, journalist, photographers and individuals. This magazine exposes and highlights these individuals and their work to build a magazine that is a safe zone for us to discuss, share and create our stories and thoughts.
