After more than two months of trying, we are glad that we finally have Issue Six up for download on our site. This is partly due to the commitment of Dolapo Amusan, one of us, and partly due to our resilience - What does one do after a long arduous task, except to praise himself?
Two quick issues. One, our next issue would not be out this month again, as scheduled. We want you to take all the time to chew and digest the God Issue. It would be out in October. This means that we are still welcoming entries that essentially theme on Technology. Works with other themes are welcome, but note that we're giving much space to considerations of how Technology has changed and shaped our lives, altered, if you wish. Please use our new submission manager. Go to this link (http://saraba.submishmash.com/Submit) to submit. It's easier for us. Deadline is September 30.
Our website is presently undergoing major repairs. So expect a new look soon. The new site would ensure that we have more content. If you have not considered advertising in Saraba, please do so. The rates are in the current issue of the magazine.
Two, our next Chapbook (theming on love) would be published before the end of this month. We're featuring new poets and new poems.

Until next time, we assure you that nothing's going to come between us and Saraba; it's an everlasting love, and passion.
Warm literary regards,
EMMANUEL IDUMA & DAMILOLA AJAYI
