Banipal magazine showcases contemporary Arab authors in English translation, from wherever they are writing and publishing.
An independent magazine, founded in 1998 by Margaret Obank and Iraqi author Samuel Shimon, Banipal’s three issues a year present both established and emerging Arab writers through poems, short stories, excerpts and author interviews.
The magazine is a vehicle for intercultural dialogue and exchange, opening a window for UK and other Western audiences on the realities of Arab culture in all its diversity and vibrancy.
