We have decided not to open for submissions this year. 2020 was a very tough year for publishing in South Africa and internationally. We also have a backlog of books which will keep us busy till 2022. If you have been previously published by Modjaji – please send a query letter.

See below for what we normally accept:

  • Novels
  • Collections of short stories by a single author
  • Creative Non-fiction which can include memoir, letters, biography and other kinds of non-fiction.
  • Poetry – but we only call for submissions when we have space in our publishing schedule, we expect the next poetry call to be in 2022.

Please note we only publish southern African women writers.
