A new indie literary magazine featuring South West Asian / North African voices.


We are Pan-Arab/SWANA in all our brilliant hues: brown, black, gold, camouflaged in your white suburb or peppered like stop signs within your city. Middle East? More like Middle of the World. Cradle of Civilization, baby. We're indigenous, alien, diasporic, nostalgic, permanent. Whether abroad or at home, we carry old conquests within us, alongside our glorious revolutions.

Shes, gays, theys, and all marginal writers (from all continents and backgrounds) are especially encouraged to submit their poetry, fiction, and essays.
