Banipal Magazine - One-Year Subscription
Published by Banipal Magazine
Banipal showcases contemporary Arab authors in English translation, from wherever they are writing and publishing. An independent and innovative magazine, Banipal's three issues a year, continuous since Spring 1998, are now in a handy paperback book format, and present both established and emerging authors through poems, short stories or excerpts from novels.
Each issue now has a main theme and there are regular features on LITERARY INFLUENCES of major authors, a TRAVELLING TALE, and an INTERVIEW, plus book reviews and photo-reports of literary events. Each issue is well illustrated with author photographs and the full colour covers feature prominent Arab artists.
