owners. Enquiries to permissions(at)african-writing.com.
We welcome submissions from our readers. Our preference is for new, unpublished work. Our natural constituency of writers and material are African or Diasporan (please interpret boldly) but we will publish any writer who writes into the African Condition (please interpret boldly). We are adventurous in our definition of Africana, but we will also publish good literature generally.
Please read us before submitting. If you are a poet, send a long poem or four smaller pieces. Essays, fiction, memoirs and other prose pieces should be 1,500 to 6000 words. Please attach a third person biography and a photograph. We aim to acknowledge submissions. Editorial decisions are usually made within a month.
We actively encourage the submission of literature in translation. We are keen to publish good writers who are not particularly familiar to readers in English. We accept submisssions throughout the year and are happy to hear your proposals for projects.
We will not publish hate literature.
We do not currently pay for submissions. This policy will soon change.
Please query before sending reviews. We are happy to receive books for review that may be of interest to our readers.
We are happy to publish event information of interest to the writing
world. We are happy to receive advertising enquiries for the print
and online editions.
Please send your queries and submissions to the editor
