Readers interested in Bangladesh have long felt the need for an English-language Bangladeshi-Indian Subcontinental, international periodical devoted exclusively to arts and letters. Earlier ventures like New Values in the 1950s, and Form: A Magazine of the Arts in the 1980s, generated much interest, but folded mainly because the tasks of gathering material, editing and publishing at the same time proved difficult to sustain for the individuals who launched them. We axe fortunate in finding a publisher to take care of the second task, while we get on with the business and pleasure of editing.
The title - Six Seasons Review - for this literary journal derives from the subcontinental convention of dividing the year into six seasons/ Summer-Grishma (April-June), Monsoon-Barsha June-August), Autumn-Sharat (August-October), late Autumn-Hemanta (October-December), Winter-Sheeth (December-February), and, Spring-Bashanta (February-April).
The only criterion for accepting submissions from contributors is quality writing - in English and in English translations - poetry, fiction, non-fiction, drama, belles lettres, inter-views, essays on literatures, and other arts.
The success of Six Seasons Review is entirely dependent on the readers. We hope what we publish will be read with pleasure through all six seasons.
