OlongoAfrica is published twice weekly to give a platform to new writings from or about Africa. We publish creative works ranging from poetry to literary criticism to journalism to travelogues. We are also very interested in literary translations from English into African languages, and from African languages into English. But do not feel limited by any of these. If you have something you think might interest us, do send it and let us decide.

Pitch to us at We pay, with our rates depending on length, how much we like it, and other factors.

You should hear from us soon about the status of your submission. If you haven’t heard from us after four weeks of submission, please feel free to query.
