Who we are
Fikra is an online Palestinian literary magazine founded in 2022. We publish essays, short stories, poetry, and visual art in both Arabic and English. Fikra Magazine is a platform for Palestinians and by Palestinians. We don’t accept funding from governments or politically affiliated donors to ensure complete editorial independence.
Fikra Magazine is part of a cultural ecosystem in Palestine that publishes high-quality and uncensored literature and art. We believe in the importance of original and provocative pieces that express different perspectives on Palestine. The occupation has continuously attempted to silence Palestinian voices wherever they can. In the face of apartheid and injustice, a magazine might not seem like much. Still, the ideas, perspectives, and dialogue that Fikra Magazine offers can contribute to the resistance and resilience that are part and parcel of Palestine.
To ensure the sustainability of Fikra Magazine, we offer digital subscriptions and a yearly print edition that is for sale in bookstores. We offer an uncensored and unapologetic platform for Palestinian writers, artists, and readers from across the globe. We believe that great stories from the Palestinian community have the power to enrich our readers’ life and bolster the modern Palestinian cultural heritage.
