Inspired by “Iskanci,” the Hausa word for mischief, irreverence, and craziness, Iskanchi Mag will seek out and publish wayward literature by African writers. The idea is to showcase works that engage with and examine what the experimental form looks like in the African literary context. We are interested in pieces that disobey in form and content, in works that bother by being without borders.
Send us your irreverent and disobedient work too short/small to stand alone as a book.
Writers will receive compensation for accepted magazine pieces.
We accept all file formats.
Submissions should please include a cover letter.
We aim to respond to submissions within three months, hopefully earlier.
