Deadline: August 31, 2017.
Africa in Dialogue engages in dialogues with Africa’s leading storytellers on various contemporary, historical, philosophical and social discourses that affect Africans in Africa and the Diaspora. It invites Africans to submit original, unpublished dialogues with African storytellers from July 15. Emmanuel Iduma will guest-edit the first issue.
Send in original and unpublished interviews no longer than 5000 words in length written in English. However, it will accept translated interviews. Base the dialogues on a piece of work that the storyteller created or is creating.
Title interviews as follows: “Title of Interview: A Dialogue With Full Name of Interviewee.” For example, “The First Issue: A Dialogue With Gaamangwe Joy Mogami.”
Send interviews as a single Word attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, include in the document a 200-word or less bio of your interviewee and a 100-word or less bio of yourself. Do not paste your submissions in the body of the email. And your email subject line must read “First Issue Submission: (Your Full Name).
Your submission should include high-resolution images of both the interviewee, interviewer, and translator.
Africa in Dialogue accepts one interview at a time. But it accepts simultaneous submissions. However, do notify the team when your submission is accepted elsewhere. It does not yet pay contributors. Finally, it will reply all entries by Sept. 15.
