  • Additional info

    The magazine has a Pan-African focus with the area of interest being Africa, Caribbean and the Black diaspora. Lolwe aims to publish more work by Black writers as this is a way to ensure greater visibility for stories by Black people and to give a platform and space for the “Black imagination.” Lolwe also offers online creative writing workshop-style classes and masterclasses by some of the best African writers through the platform Lolwe Classes. We submit our writers to the Pushcart Prize and O. Henry Prize.
