Ricepaper magazine is a Canadian magazine which showcases Asian Canadian literatureculture, and arts. It first began in 1994 as a newsletter for the Asian Canadian Writers’ Workshop (ACWW) – eight pages which were photocopied back-to-back and stapled together. Ricepaper was a way for ACWW members to communicate amongst each other as well as celebrate each other’s successes. ACWW, a non-profit organization, continues to publish Ricepaper today.

From these humble beginnings, Ricepaper became a quarterly magazine that was distributed coast-to-coast, publishing the new voices coming out of the Asian Canadian arts and literary community. Ricepaper continues to be the only Canadian literary magazine of its kind with an Asian Canadian perspective.
