Contemporary Small Press

Afsana Press


Afsana Press is an independent publishing house producing sparkling literary works by authors whose stories have a direct relation to social, political or cultural issues in countries and communities around the world.

Our mission is to get to the heart of the urgent matters of our time, and times past, asking important questions about migration and refugees, the environment, gender, development and social justice. Particular attention will go to the work of authors in exile, and our stories often concern the movement of humans in an ever-shifting, dangerous world. All this without taking a certain political direction – we simply want to ask, why, how, where and who, always through profoundly human stories.
