Editorial Focus

Taking its inspiration from other pugnacious, and cool magazines like Chimurenga, Bakwa was founded to counter the absence of literary magazines in Cameroon; with a wide ranging remit that’s broader than the literary, Bakwa is an eclectic, intelligent take on the dynamic cultural scenes often missed by mainstream, western media.

Tips From the Editor

We have a penchant for experimental and innovative writing and celebrate literary provincialism.
