Modjaji Books is closed for submissions, we will only call for submissions in 2022.

2020 was a tough year for publishers and the book trade in general both here and internationally. We have decided to focus on the titles we have in the pipeline, which will keep us busy well into 2022. Authors who have previously published with us are of course welcome to write a query letter.

These are other South African publishers who publish similar books to us that are worth considering submitting to:

Fiction: Jacana Media, Panmacmillan, Geko, Blackbird Books, NB Publishers, Karavan Press for fiction.

For creative non-fiction: Bookstorm, Jonathan Ball, PanMacmillan, Jacana Media, NB Publishers, Geko, Blackbird Books, Karavan Press.

For poetry – imphepho press, deep south, Dryad Press, Black Media Press, Uhlanga Press isn’t accepting submissions this year either.

Please let us know if we should add other publishers here. These are the ones that we were able to list without doing extensive research. Email with your suggestions.
