Call for Submissions: The Kalahari Review (Africa-wide)

Published weekly, The Kalahari Review is still open for submissions and is currently looking for fresh content. Derek Workman, Kalahari Review's Editor in Chief, welcomes submissions of poetry, short fiction, essays, long-form journalism and other creative non-fiction.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES:

The Kalahari Review is an African-eccentric magazine interested in material exploring Africa and Africans in unique and avant-garde ways. We are looking for stories that have not often been told but should be – through voices that have not yet been heard - but should.

We hope to push the limits and expose the world to aspects of Africa not often shown - both the positives and the negatives. We are interested in pieces about and from Africans living abroad as well.

Please take the time to enjoy the content of the site and get a feel for it before submitting.

Because this is a web-based publication there are no word count restrictions. Compensation is paid on publication.

Additional recommended viewing and reading to help give you a feel of the level and feel of work we are looking for before before submitting -
