About

Sub-saharan Magazine is dedicated to publishing fiction, nonfiction, and poetry rooted in African cultures. We believe that Africa is generally underrepresented in the publishing world, and we want to fill that void. We want to help tell the untold stories of the continent. Therefore, most of the pieces we publish are either written by Africans or have African cultures written all over them. This doesn’t mean we don’t welcome submissions from other parts of the world. In fact, we will accept anything from anywhere so far as it’s rooted in African cultures.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Be professional, patient and persistent.
