Welcome to Afapinen

Thank you for visiting this page. If you’re interested in good writing and book reviews, you’re in the right place.

Afapinen is a literary magazine primarily for reviewing mainstream literature books by Nigerians, to re-introduce literary criticism and discourse as an inextricable driver of Nigerian literature. We hope to partner with mainstream publishers to achieve this and become a home for reviews of Nigerian books. 

To match international standard, we have an in-house style guide for our editors to curate quality writing. We uphold erudition, good and skillful writing as our standard. Our editors are carefully selected for their outstanding skill and knowledge of writing and understanding of literature.
