The Black Writers' Guild after twenty-four years of publishing KOLA in a print format, is about to enter the electronic age. Beginning with Volume 25 #1, the magazine will provide its worldwide readership with an online version. Subscription can be paid through pay pal for the online version and by certified cheque or money order for the printed version. Only limited quantities will be available in print. Both the online and printed magazine will be formatted similarly. Hyperlinks to other internet resources will be made available.


The decision to go online was made to adapt to the interactive and informative aspects of the World Wide Web. The internet will provide greater visibility for the magazine and highlight the work of continental Africans and those in the Diaspora, particularly Canadians of African descent.

The guild's aim is also to attract more scholarly papers, new poets and fiction writers, playwrights and artists. We invite contributors, readers and subscribers to continue supporting this one of a kind literary magazine.

This edition features poems by the prolific Black Canadian writer George Elliott Clarke. He has been an ardent supporter and contributor to the magazine over many years. His most recent work is: Directions Home: Approaches to African-Canadian Literature (University of Toronto Press, 2012).

Robert Edison Sandiford is a Canadian born writer of Barbadian parents. He resides in Barbados where he writes short fiction, essays and creates graphic novels. His short story "Massiah" is an evocative and insightful commentary on Caribbean politics at the point where women join the game.

Professor Derrilyn Morrison is a reviewer of renown and has kept the readership well-informed about new titles from the Caribbean and in North America. She is also a talented poet and critic and has contributed articles and poetry to KOLA.

We welcome manuscripts by email and snail mail. Our address: and KOLA, 1890 Carson Avenue, Dorval, Quebec, Canada H9S 1N7
