Wasafiri Special Issue 64 Out Now!
|Black Britain: Beyond Definition
Guest Editors Bernardine Evaristo and Karen McCarthy Woolf
“This special issue is all about what is happening in literature now.
It features some of Britain’s leading black writers as well as several writers
who are beginning their careers. My introduction examines the
landscape for writers of colour in Britain today and raises questions
about who is getting published and where imbalances need
to be redressed. There is something for everyone – interviews,
stories, reviews, essays, poetry, notes….” Bernardine Evaristo
