Our Stories are Eternal
The short version: email submissions (.doc, .rtf, .docx, .odt file formats) to write (at) africanwriter.com or use form below.
AfricanWriter.com is open to all genres of literature from Africa and the African Diaspora. We publish prose fiction, creative non-fiction, folktales, poetry, dramatic pieces, essays/creative features, interviews/profiles, book excerpts/reviews, etc.
As a policy, we strive to update this website fortnightly, so there is no deadline limitation. Most contributions are published within two weeks of receipt and the writer is notified via email. Anything not published within a month may mean the contribution does not fit into our general vision for the website.
Please ensure all entries are single line spaced, and in standard Times New Roman 12pt. font.
We have no length restrictions, but less is encouraged, although a powerfully written piece will be considered whatever the length. Try to keep it under 5000 words if you can. For poetry, submit at least 2 to give the readers a proper sampling of your work (unless it is an extended poem).
Please ensure that the submission is properly edited for errors.
Please include a brief profile.
Optionally, attach a photo or content image.
All submissions (.doc, .rtf, .docx, .odt file formats) can be made below or emailed to write at africanwriter.com
AfricanWriter.com is currently unable to pay for submissions. Hopefully, as we continue to grow the readership and appreciation of literature from Africa and Africans, that day will come.
Comments or questions are welcome. You can also use the form below to submit entries, content images and request updates to Africanwriter.com.
