    Literary Webzine View

    Our monthly literature webzine <View> was launched in December 2017, based on the concept of a literary magazine ‘in my hand,’ making it possible for our readers to enjoy literature via mobile and web technology, anytime, anywhere. The webzine is composed of the three sections ‘Do,’ ‘Write,’ and ‘Ask.’ Each issue is published on the last Tuesday of each month, with a view to providing a new perspective and method for understanding literature. Some of the items are produced as we build a network with our readers in order to expand its functions as an alternative platform for the literary community.

    Cultural Campaign

    It is a ‘literature read-out campaign’ using the broadcast media, which delivers a message of hope through the words of authors while contributing to the proliferation of the values of literature and the opportunities to enjoy literature.


    The four buildings of the Seoul Art Space Yeonhui, named Kkeullim (attracted), Hollim (charmed), Ullim (resonating), and Deullim (heard), contain 19 writing studios in addition to such community spaces as an outdoor stage and a literature media lab.
    The Literature Media Lab is a cultural space open to all (Mon-Fri 10:00~17:00). Visitors are warmly invited to browse through the coll-ection of books and enjoy a cup of coffee.
