  1. I congratulate you on your publication of your maiden print edition. This is a big step, not just for you, but also for African Literature in general. It is time for more of our new writings to spread to the world. We have so many things to say and we pray there are those who are willing to read us and understand us. Congrats once again.
    On another note, i observed that your submission portal is open but there are no themes for an issue 22 on your theme calender page. Please i would love to know as i intend to try at submitting some of my amateur meanderings to you.Thank you.
