In all aspects – editing, design, layout and breadth of material, Kwani? 03 introduces a new chapter to the African creative writing scene. Themed on the seventies, the cover introduces a collaboration between visual and comic art and text in interesting and interactive ways. Established writers, M. G. Vassanji and Zimbabwe’s Charles Mungoshi grace its pages, among several other new writers published for the first time. Creative non-fiction with social commentary also appears in the issue.
Featured authors include Billy Kahora, Dayo Forster, MG Vassanji, Martin K. Mbugua, Kama, Duncan Kisia, Mukoma Ngugi and Steve Partington.
