Doek! Magazine

Doek! is a free, independent, and Pan-African online literary magazine produced in Windhoek, Namibia. Founded by Mutaleni Nadimi and Rémy Ngamije, Doek! is an important step—but not the only step—towards creating a diverse, curious, and robust literary culture in Namibia. Doek! is published online three times a year: in March, July, and November. The magazine is published in English with some select content appearing in Namibia’s indigenous languages.
