Iskanchi Press - African Literature

Iskanchi Press:
Iskanchi Press is a US-based publishing house for African writers. We believe stories and ideas convey humanity to the future and that our progress to an egalitarian world is sooner achieved when all perspectives are heard and considered.
Our mission is to promote authentic African perspectives through a variety of African books, including fiction, non-fiction, and children’s literature written in, or translated into, English. We aim to redress the negative presumptions about Africa, satisfy the American reader’s interest in diverse expressions, and serve the needs of African immigrants and minorities interested in seeing a more nuanced representation of themselves and their stories in the world.

Iskanchi Magazine:
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 Press unites voices and celebrates Africa's diverse narratives through curated expressions and
translations
