Itanile is pleased to release the ninth issue of her biannual Mag. The issue, themed Prisms, features short stories and poems from emerging and established talents across Africa.

Guest edited by Sibongile Fisher, the works in the Prism issue process emotions familiar and vague, offering interpretations that propose to the reader – and to the human mind – that there are several approaches to satisfying the curiosities of life and living. The issue is available for download here.

The editors at Itanile appreciate every writer who sent in a piece for the issue. We thoroughly enjoyed reading all entries, and though we would have loved to move forward with many of the brilliant pieces, there are limited spaces for each issue.

Submissions for the tenth issue will be open soon. We will notify you once submissions begin. While you wait, we ask that you feast on our previous issues and share with readers within your community.
