Chtenia is the Russian word for “readings.” And it is the title of our quarterly literary journal of quality fiction, non-fiction and photography, published in a convenient and portable paperback book format.
"The journal is handsomely but simply produced, privileging the text over fancy graphics, but easy to read and designed for study and enjoyment, which makes it both an excellent classroom resource, as well as fine reading for anyone who appreciates good literary journals. Contributors’ notes provide ample, but not excessive, historical context, and include, as they should, information about the translators. This is an impressive and unusual journal that deserves a space in every university and secondary school’s library collection and in the mailboxes of serious readers, no matter their Russian language skills."
