Announcing Wasafiri's new Editor and Publishing Director

Wasafiri is pleased to announce that Sana Goyal, who has been with the magazine since 2019, has been appointed Editor and Publishing Director. 2024 is Wasafiri’s 40th anniversary year, and in it we’ll be featuring the best of Wasafiri, as well as reflecting on our history, the literary industry, and also the possibilities for our shared futures and worlds.

Commenting on her appointment, Sana Goyal said: ‘I’m honoured and thrilled to be Wasafiri’s Editor and Publishing Director. Since joining the magazine five years ago, first as Digital Editor, and later as Deputy Editor, I’ve come to think of Wasafiri as home, as no doubt, many writers and readers do. I’m excited to lead the organisation into and beyond its 40th anniversary and will hold close its original mission statement to provoke cross-cultural dialogue as I endeavour to further solidify our role as literary and cultural tastemakers within the industry.’

Wasafiri’s Chair, Rishi Dastidar said: ‘I’m delighted that Sana will be our next Editor and Publishing Director. Her vision for the magazine is exciting, and one that will reconfirm Wasafiri’s place as the home for agenda-setting, international contemporary writing as we go into our 40th anniversary in 2024.’
