From Africa In Words:
The rather beautiful, inaugural issue of the online TSSF
(The Single Story Foundation) Journal is live.
What is the TSSF Journal?
The TSSF Journal is one of the new publications offering opportunities to accommodate the exploding literary culture that is sweeping the African landscape and diaspora. Our contributors included writers from Nigeria, South Africa, Kenya, Botwswana, Somalia and Cameroon, and some who live in the diaspora. The writers are Lauri Kubuitsile, Athol Williams, Efe Ogufere, Timi Odueso, Ahmad Holderness, O.J. Nwankwo, Taiye Ojo, Torinmo Salau, Fahima Hersi, Rešoketšwe Manenzhe, Helen Nde, Ané Breytenbach, Muwanwu Sikhitha, Ifeanyichukwu Eze, C.J. Nelson, and Carey Baraka. The journal features poetry, short stories and creative non-fiction. It comes in a blog format, which is easier to read for those that access the Internet on the phone. It is also available in print layout – with turntable pages – that is easy to read on a computer or tablet. This is what the journal would look like if we’d had the funds to print it and is my favorite way to read it. Murewa Olubela, founder of TSSF (The Single Story Foundation), did a stunning job laying it out. The brilliant cover art is by Aisha Jemila and the photograph is titled Aisha’s Acceptance.
