The Shallow Tales Review is an African literary magazine that publishes content from African writers from across the continent. We also publish African literature from non-Africans in the Disapora.
In The Shallow Tales Review, we accept fiction, articles, reviews, poems, one-act plays, essays, art photographs, and thoughts that touch on the sensibilities of the African.
Literary criticisms must concern texts that are of modern and African temperament. For essays, we expect themes to be tackled logically and as clearly as possible. Feel free to break genre restrictions as you wish. We appreciate fluidity as much as we value ingenuity.
For now, we do not pay contributors, but we hope to do so in the nearest future.
Entries should be sent in by mail to the editor at: [email protected] with “TSTR Submissions” in the subject line.
Non artwork entries should be between 1,500 – 4,000 words and should come in .doc or .docx format. Poetry submissions should not be more than forty (40) lines, per poem. We accept a maximum of three poetry entries at a time.
Files should saved with the title of the work, and in the case of a body of poems, with the first poem in the file.
The Shallow Tales Review publishes six times every year in January, March, May, July, September, and November. We begin to accept submissions from the 1st to the 20th of every publishing month.
