Emphasis is on what each writer contributes, in that moment when the creation of art is a solitary process. It is at that moment when what you are–munyori–is highlighted.

While the journal receives the bulk of its submissions from Zimbabwe and the United States, it also features works from Nigeria, India, China, the UK, Ireland, South Africa, Ghana, Canada, and more from all corners of the globe.
