Since its launch in 1984, the literary magazine Wasafiri has "encourage[d] readers and writers to travel the world via the word." With its focus on international contemporary writing, Wasafiri set out to cover "writers from African, Caribbean, Asian and Black British backgrounds who often struggled to get adequate attention in the mainstream press." While print and Kindle editions of this magazine are available for purchase, some of Wasafiri's content can be read online for free at the link above. From the homepage, visitors are able to access some of its most recent Featured pieces, such as an interview with Suhaiymah Manzoor-Khan about her debut poetry collection, Postcolonial Banter, and Alicia Mietus's short story, "Third Person Female," which won the Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) Wasafiri New Writing Prize 2019 for Fiction. Under the Read menu, visitors can explore the magazine's archive of content, organized topically into Fiction, Articles, and Poetry. Founded by its editor-in-chief Susheila Nasta, a professor of modern literature at QMUL, Wasafiri is co-published by Routledge and supported by funding from Arts Council England.
