Lolwe is a Kenya-based Pan-African magazine of literature and photography, founded by Troy Onyango. We have released four issues, in June 2020, December 2020, June 2021, and December 2021. We organize the Lolwe Classes, a series of creative writing workshops on Zoom.
The Kenya-based magazine’s latest, featuring fiction, poetry, essays, and photography by 18 contributors, is guest-edited by the Ghanaian writer Elfreda Tetteh and the Trinidadian writer Akhim Alexis, and illustrated by the Nigerian artist Moje Ikpeme.
Open Country Mag was created with a pioneering mission: to publish essential, in-depth stories in African literature. Our vision is to build a modern archive of literary histories, contextualized. Our work requires quality dedication, which we have, and funding, which we lack. Will you support our cultural journalism?
