TOKEN Magazine is a bi-annual literature and arts print magazine which launched in May 2017. Created, edited and designed by Sara Jafari.
The name comes from the experience of tokenism that underrepresented groups often face. This includes people of colour, women, LGBT+, those with disabilities, and other minority groups. TOKEN Magazine is an outlet to work against that - we want to hear and see everyone’s stories, fictional or not.
You will find in each issue that the majority of the pieces are by people of colour, and other minority groups. Diversity of voice is essential to the magazine, not an afterthought.
