Wasafiri is a literary magazine at the forefront in mapping new landscapes in international literature. Since the early 1980s, it has continued to provide consistent coverage to Britain’s diverse cultural heritage, travel the world via the word and publish the best of tomorrow's writers today.
Wasafiri is 30 this year! When Susheila Nasta started a literary magazine back in 1984 with a small group of like-minded individuals sat around her kitchen table, she couldn't have imagined that thirty years on Wasafiri would be leading the field in contemporary international literature. To mark this special year, we have several exciting things in store - we're launching a new feature for exclusive fiction online, running a publishing project with London schools and even taking a literary boat trip down the River Thames. Join us for all this and more throughout 2014.
