EditorRabi Thapa

Lalit Magazine has been edited by writer and editor Rabi Thapa since its founding and has so far published nine bi-annual volumes, in addition to maintaining a website that uploads periodic content. Each volume contains fiction, non-fiction, translations and reviews, all centered around a loose theme. For instance, the eighth volume, which was guest edited by Canadian-Nepali writer Manjushree Thapa, was focused on translations from languages other than Nepali language, but from Nepal. While the early volumes contained a mix of Nepali and English writing, later volumes have been exclusively in English.

The magazine also conducts a biennial writing contest called Writing Nepal, which is judged by Nepali-American writer Samrat Upadhyay[1][2]. Past winners of the contest include Samyak Shertok[3], Pranaya Rana[4] and Dipesh Risal[5].

In May 2020, the magazine started a podcast series with conversations between its "floating pool of editors"[6].
