Based out of Melbourne, Australia and Tokyo, Japan, Red Leaves / 紅葉 is edited by writers Kirk Marshall[3][4][5][6][7][8][9] and Yasuhiro Horiuchi, and designed by Liberty Browne.[10][11] The inaugural issue was translated by Sunny Suh, Asami Nishimura and Joo Whan Suh. The journal is produced independently through the small press imprint, A Cowboy Named Molasses Publishing,[12] and was first published and launched in May, 2010, during the 2010 Emerging Writers' Festival in Melbourne. It featured contributions from thirty writers, including Ivy Alvarez,[13] Toby Litt, Nathaniel Rich, Nicholas Hogg, Travis Jeppesen, Eric Dando, Patrick Holland[disambiguation needed], Jeremy Balius, Mandy Ord, Hirofumi Sugimoto, Daisuke Suzuki, Kenji Siratori, Keiji Minato, Kuniharu Shimizu, Tokihiko Araki and Iris Yamashita.[14][15] The magazine is released as an anthology annually and showcases short fiction, manga, creative non-fiction and poetry.[16] It is concerned with exhibiting the work of emerging and established authors, with an aesthetic focus on experimental narrative, cultural transnationalism and cross-cultural poetics. The second issue, a spoken-word collection,[17] would be released in 2013.[needs update]
