Hi, we're Jess and Will. We manage Books and Bao, a travel and culture online magazine. Our current focus is on East Asian culture but we will soon be looking to expand further into South East Asia.

Our usual topics include: translated fiction, female writers, travel tips and guides, LGBTQ fiction and news, feminist news, local food, local tours, and media. We currently do most of the writing ourselves, with added help from our wonderful guest writers.

We will very soon be adding regular video content, based out of Japan, via our YouTube channel. Video content will continue our focus on literature, travel, language, and culture but also include video games, films, and TV.

Our Patreon goal is to create a digital magazine that will be available to all Patreon subscribers. All support will go in to making our site bigger and better.

We're passionate about what we do and would love your support to ensure we can keep doing it! Find us at www.booksandbao.com

Tiers
Chingu
$1 or more per month
Chingu (meaning friend in Korean) are arguably the most vital tier, keeping us ticking along like an old, reliable pocket watch.
Senpai
$5 or more per month
Senpai (loosely meaning 'master' in Japanese) allow us to put out more content more regularly, and at higher production values.
Qin 亲
$10 or more per month
Qin (loosely meaning 'dearest' in Chinese) are the undisputed lords of our lives, and we're not sure if we deserve their generosity but we certainly appreciate it from the bottoms of our hearts.
