BlackInk Issue 4 explores the theme Representation, Relocation and Relevation.  The magazine is packed full of insightful articles and critical analysis, with contributions from Gina Yashere, Gary Younge, Carolyn Cooper, VV Brown and many others.

This year’s Launchpad commissions shine a spotlight on the lived experiences of Black women. Perceptions of these women are challenged by Tina Ramos Ekongo and Lauryn Pinard collaborates with Latisha César and Holly Francis as they make space for rest.

BlackInk New Writing Competition Winners June Aming and Shere Ross share short fiction from Caribbean and Black British perspectives, both demonstrating exceptional command of language and dialect whilst portraying facets of the human condition.
