In the world of pseudo-mags, Saraba is indeed welcome on the board as a magazine by young people that's beautiful in content and quality.

Saraba is an electronic magazine that publishes emerging writers of prose and poetry. By ‘emerging writers’ we mean writers who have been published little or not at all but have recognizable talent and qualitative writing. 

The first two issues of the electronic magazine can be downloaded free from www.sarabamag.com

Saraba works with young established writers as guest editors. Jumoke Verrisimo was the guest editor for the first issue. The guest editor for the august issue would be Tolu Ogunlesi, Guest Writer at the Nordic African Institute 2008 and author of Listen to the Geckos singing from the Balcony and Conquest and Conviviality.

Interested contributors are required to submit their works. Fiction writers are to submit stories not exceeding 5,000 words. Poets are to submit not more than three poems. The e-zine also welcomes submissions of reviews of books and published short stories. This should not exceed 1,500 words. The last category open for submission is creative non-fiction. In this genre we expect works that reflect creativity but are not stories. The word count for this is 1,500.  

Each issue the magazine would focus on a theme. All entries (except reviews) should reflect the theme whether overtly or covertly. The theme for the August issue is Economy.

The deadline for the August issue is June 30, 2009.
