Doek! Literary Magazine (Doek!) is a free, independent, and Pan-African online literary magazine produced in Windhoek, Namibia. It publishes short fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and visual art from Namibia and the African diaspora.
Founded in 2019, Doek! is an important step towards creating a diverse, curious, and robust literary culture in Namibia. By publishing diverse writers and visual artists, Doek! seeks to provide an encounter between local and international storytellers and a global audience.
Doek! primarily publishes work from Namibia and the Namibian diaspora while it establishes Namibian writing and art in the country’s literary consciousness. However, as part of the continental literary community Doek! solicits work from storytellers outside Namibia to showcase the breadth and depth of continental creativity. In time, Doek! hopes to be a completely Pan African publication accepting submissions and publishing work from the continent and the African diaspora.
