about BARAKUNAN

Barakunan is an independent publisher and art collective based in Beirut and Berlin. As a fundamental practice of the house, we create and curate original content with intermingling characters, storylines and settings, both familiar and fantastical. This results in a rich, expansive universe offered through serial novels, short form fiction, poetry and creative non-fiction, as well as audio and visual media.

At Barakunan, we recognize the critical role storytelling plays in writing history, in influencing the present and in crafting the future. Driven by the urgent necessity for ripe and radical narratives, we are intent on building a dynamic platform that consolidates and amplifies visions and voices that champion a changing social order.

If you are a writer or visual artist interested in collaboration, please get in touch. We are eager to hear from you.

SUBMISSIONS

At Barakunan we prize authorship and style. We find working in the early stages of a manuscript invigorating. In the writer’s capacity to live through the work, we work closely with the writer to manifest the manuscript of their intention. We are currently accepting manuscripts at all stages of completion.
