‘Wasafiri is a joy and an education for anyone who loves global literature and language and learning… particularly if, like me, you need to expand your mind beyond the constraints of canon-limited reading experience. Its editorial values enact a transparent ethics of care and curation too. I can’t recommend a subscription highly enough.’
Diane Leedham, Wasafiri subscriber

Wasafiri’s goal is to discover, support, and promote the world’s best new writing to create a globe-spanning group of readers committed to seeing the world in all its breadth.
We begin 2022 with Wasafiri 109, which introduces new fiction and an interview from Monica Ali, the 2021 Queen Mary Wasafiri New Writing Prize winners, and a lead feature on Trans Literary Activism. An incendiary article on postcolonial prize cultures, an interview with Sara Ahmed on Complaint!, and the winning entry from the 2021 Wasafiri Essay Prize on the politics of Hong Kong poetry continue the issue’s theme of literary activism across genres, institutions, and continents.
Our summer special issue Afterlives of Indenture is on legacies of indentured service in Indian and Chinese cultures of the Caribbean and features an interview with Gina Miller and new fiction from Ingrid Persaud.
In the autumn, Wasafiri 111, Translating Lives, considers translation as a practice and as a metaphor for all creative writing, and includes a lead feature by Ngũgĩ wa Thiong’o, and life writing on mother tongues curated by Nina Mingya Powles.
Our winter special, Reimagining Education, draws together scholars, authors, artists, and activists to reflect on decolonised curricula at all levels of education.
