Details

Wasafiri has always transcended the boundaries of established canons and cultures, whether academic or political, and played a pioneering role in bringing new voices to light. Wasafiri was a place where you could find reviews of the first novels and early poetry of writers who are now considered part of the mainstream, from Hanan al-Shaykh to Biyi Bandele, from Andre Brink to David Dabydeen, from Mimi Khalvati to Rohinton Mistry. More recently Wasafiri was also the first place where you could read the first English translations of a selection of contemporary writing from China (‘Writing China’, issue 55). Many writers published in Wasafiri have been nominated for major literary awards, not only Abdulrazak Gurnah (shortlisted for the Booker in 1994) and John Haynes (winner of the Costa Poetry Prize in 2006 and the Troubadour Poetry Prize in 2007), but also Segun Afolabi who won the Caine Prize for ‘Monday Morning’ (published in issue 41) and later Orange Prize nominees Bernardine Evaristo and Kamila Shamsie. Significantly too, Wasafiri has started to expand the space it has always provided for dialogues across different literary constituencies and local neighbourhoods. Clearly many of the writers Wasafiri has published now belong to a recognisable global and international literary scene. This, however, does not mean that Wasafiri’s work is done. As Susheila Nasta, writes in her editorial to the 25th anniversary issue, ‘Wasafiri is no longer a newcomer on the literary stage but strangely enough it still feels like one. Perhaps this is a good thing. Literary magazines can only ever continue to perform a useful role if they continue to forge new connections’. Today – with growing reinforcement of national and political borders, with increasing restrictions on our movement and thought – the work of Wasafiri seems more vital than ever. As ‘Everything to Declare’, the title for our 25th anniversary year suggests, Wasafiri remains committed to the unbounded vision of writing across worlds with which it began.
