Dan Lain Lain is a book project consisting of true stories about the experiences of people classified as "Lain Lain" (Other) by official Malaysian quota system, which at most times recognizes only the three major race categories of Malay / Chinese / Indian. These original slice-of-life stories will provide unique insights into their daily lives and personal challenges. There will be memoirs, biographies, interviews and more. In a nutshell, it is a unique and promising literary compilation in the making.

Dan Lain Lain is just getting started. If you want to be part of this project, you certainly can! We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers who would want to help out in whichever capacities they are able. We need assistance in logistics, PR, research, finance, publishing, sponsorships and anything else to make this project a success. If you have the knowledge, skills and the passion to get things done, we welcome you into the team.

Get in touch with us today by joining Dan Lain Lain Official Facebook Group and/or Dan Lain Lain Official Mailing List. Please let us know the area(s) that you would like to help out with.

IF you would like to submit YOUR story, you can too. Among those who can submit their stories are:
· Migrants or children of migrants
· Those who were born/raised in Malaysia but do not figure in the quota system
· Those who technically should fit into the M/C/I quotas but for some reason are not (Example: A Punjabi girl tossed into "Lain Lain" in school)
· Those who come from racially diverse backgrounds and opt to describe themselves as Lain Lain

The finer details for submissions such as TYPE, WORD COUNT and DEADLINE have yet to be finalized by our Editorial team, but do stay tuned for updates!
