We are always seeking essays personal and non-personal that may not themselves be about Nigeria but explore issues relevant to Nigeria and the wider African continent.
Please send all essays as MS Word attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are also interested in original thoughts on art, culture, politics and the economy, which may be presented as reviews of books, new technology and works of art.
Please send all criticism as MS-Word attachments to email@example.com.
We accept short stories (7,500 words max) and novellas (30,000 words max). We do not, however, accept unsolicited novel manuscripts.
Please send all fiction as MS Word attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We ask that submissions be written mainly in English but encourage the submission of fictional works written (partly or entirely – think Sozaboy by Ken Saro-Wiwa) in Pidgin English. We will only consider previously unpublished works (this applies to works published on personal blogs and websites). Please submit no more than three stories, three essays or three works of criticism at a time.
Please send all submissions as MS Word attachments with the category of the manuscript in the subject line (e.g. ESSAY). We accept submissions on a rolling basis⎈
