The creation and publication of a journal is a remarkable scholarly event. Most importantly, the inaugural issue marks the actualisation of an original idea and vision that evolved out of the identification of a scholarly niche in the production and dissemination knowledge. Which is why we are proud to introduce the inaugural issue of KENTE: Cape Coast Journal of Literature and the Arts. Kente is a peer-reviewed online journal founded and based in the Department of English, University of Cape Coast, Ghana. The fundamental objective of the journal is to provide an open-access scholarly platform for the publication and dissemination of original papers that make significant contributions to specific authors, genres, thematic and theoretical issues within the areas of literature and the arts. Kente is also interested in putting our readers in direct contact with distinguished and emerging scholars and creative writers through the publication of interviews and poems. Furthermore, we publish reviews on scholarly and creative books that fall within the broad scope of the journal.
