Our publications and website reflect and represent the best of new writing mainly from Nigeria, and the rest of the African continent. Our goal is to give new writers the opportunity of having their works published. “New writers” is defined loosely, to spark useful dialogue—we are interested in writers whose work show tremendous promise but have hardly been published in a major literary magazine.
Saraba’s staff is a small number of committed and enthusiastic but busy writers, scholars and artists. As such, entries that do not keep to our guidelines would not be considered, unfortunately. Interested contributors should consider downloading a copy of one of our past issues.
Beginning in 2017, we will publish at least one print publication each year, as well as several online-only works of fiction, non-fiction, and poetry.
Submissions are closed for both our print publication and website. Please check back in October 2017.
