Since Saraba Magazine was launched in February 2009, we have published the work of up to three hundred writers online, whether in the issues of our magazine, our poetry chapbooks, and on our website. Each edition of our publications is available in its entirety for free online. But each year the cost of producing our work grows along with our ambition—to promote writing by emerging writers in Nigeria and other parts of the African continent, at the earliest stages of their career. Saraba Literary Trust, a non-profit organization based in Lagos, Nigeria, administers our work.

To underwrite our costs—to finally have the means to pay our contributors, to compensate our inimitable editors, and to take on more audacious literary projects—we’re soliciting for donations.

Of course, all amounts are welcome.

We use Paystack to collect donations, a safe and secure method of payment. Please note that Paystack accepts all major international banking cards. If you are donating from outside Nigeria, you can donate in the Naira equivalent.
