Watch this space for more information regarding guidelines and timelines for our first-ever issue. With both digital and print versions, our bi-annual literary magazine curates quality flash, podcasts, short stories, interviews, criticism, letters, poetry, reviews, personal essays, creative non-fiction, lists, manifestos, and more on a certain theme. We work with Black writers, particularly emerging Black writers.

We are a very new publication and unable to pay our writers right now. We are hoping to change this soon and put the ‘paying’ into paying Black readers, writers, authors, and publishers their literary dues.

Accra Noir, an Akashic Books anthology reissued by Cassava Republic, comprises the work of some of Ghana’s most talented writers. Edited by Nana-Ama Danquah, Accra Noir’s writers spin a complex and fantastical web of love, intrigue, drama, and crime. Much like Accra itself, these stories are not always what they seem.

While Justice Sleeps: A stunning legal thriller with a medical conspiracy that will keep you on the edge of your seat

Hari Ziyad’s debut memoir is a perfect blend of the personal and the political

Black Boy Out of Time is an eloquent and enlightening testament to the ways in which Black authors re-craft genre categories that are not truly interested in telling our stories. When Ziyad sat down to write it, that truth became quickly apparent. This memoir is essential because it dares to dream of a future that is not beholden to any of the systems and structures that many of us are afraid to transcend, even imaginatively.
