ALMA is one of Asia’s leading creative and literary publications. Traditional in some ways and unconventional in others, we admire newfangled ideas, tried-and-tested literary forms and even creative visual and performing arts. As is the case with a lot of creative works, how you see us is entirely in your hands: a pleasurable pastime, an intellectual engagement or a partner in your quest for meaning. For the inquisitive reader, we hope to be all these things and more. Across the categories we’ve concocted, you’ll find something or the other that triggers a thought or a smile.
