African perspectives to the world
Iskanchi Press exists to showcase the best expressions of African realities in all perspectives and forms. Our books detail the lived and imagined experiences that sustain the African worldviews and feature diverse works in English as well as works in translation.
Inspired by “Iskanci,” the Hausa word for mischief, irreverence, and non-conformity, Iskanchi Magazine publishes shorter works that examine what the experimental form looks like in the African literary context.

Iskanchi Literary Magazine
Inspired by “Iskanchi,” the Hausa word for irreverence, and craziness, Iskanchi Mag will seek out and publish wayward literature by African writers. The idea is to showcase works that engage with and examine what the experimental form looks like in the African literary context. We are interested in pieces that disobey in form and content, in works that bother by being without borders.
