Wasafiri is a quarterly British literary magazine covering international contemporary writing. Its name derives from a word meaning "travellers" in KiSwahili (etymologically linked with the Arabic word "safari"). The magazine holds that many of those who created the literatures in which it is particularly interested "...have all in some sense been cultural travellers either through migration, transportation or else, in the more metaphorical sense of seeking an imagined cultural 'home'." Funded by the Arts Council England, Wasafiri is "a journal of post-colonial literature that pays attention to the wealth of Black and diasporic writers worldwide. It is Britain's only international magazine for Black British, African, Asian and Caribbean literatures.”[
