Deadline: May 29.
Omenana seeks works that explore alternative futures for Africa and people of African descent – with a preference for positive iterations. You can also explore the past as well as provide new interpretations of myths, folklore and magic. It does not accept graphic violent or sexual content. Omenana is a speculative fiction e-magazine that specializes in magical realism, fantasy, horror, and science fiction with African elements in them.
Your submission should challenge normative ideas about gender, sexuality, ethnicity and religious belief. You can submit unpublished and original stories or art, written in English, although translations are welcomed. Essays and reviews on African speculative fiction are also welcomed. Omenana does not accept poetry, drama or film scripts.
