The village square is one of the most important venues in Africa. At daytime, it serves as a marketplace on market days, or the centre where meetings are held and fates decided. At night, it comes alive as a hub where the line between play and artistic display is blurred, and a compendium of sorts for culture preservation.
The Village Square Journal is a literary magazine that intends to live up to its name by being the fulcrum of the promotion and appreciation of all forms of visual arts & photography, contemporary literature and an abode for a variety of literary genres as well as other forms of written arts.
We accept and publish high level essays on political situations around the world, religion and its interaction with the wider society, cultural and traditional experiences, as well as cutting-edge fiction and creative-nonfiction that addresses personal experiences, travel and more. We also accept and publish poetry that engineers critical thinking, and interviews, as well as book/music/film reviews.
