Just before 2013 ended, Saraba Magazine released a prequel to the History Issue. It contains a short story by award-winning writer Toni Kan, and an essay by the co-publisher Emmanuel Iduma. Check it out & download.
The History Issue will be published later this month.
In the meantime, Saraba Magazine is accepting short fiction, poetry, creative non-fiction, and excerpts which address the idea of solitude.
For Saraba 16, the theme of Solitude is fitting for the creative minds, who escape within themselves to replicate a piece of the world. We are curious to know the reason for, and what it is like in those moments when they escape.
