Deadline: July 15.
You can now submit to the TSSF Journal. TSSF Journal seeks well-crafted, realistic stories about Africa, Africans, and African issues from writers of African descents or those associated with Africa. Send well-developed, complete, and thoroughly revised poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction pieces to journal@singlestory[dot]org. Email title should be: TSSF Journal: [Work Name], [genre].
You can email in a 4,000 words maximum non-fiction piece, or a 6,000 words maximum fiction piece, or three to five poems. Most importantly, send in original, unpublished works, in one document. The journal accepts all types of creative nonfiction, such as immersion reportage, personal essay, memoir, etc. However, it prefers submissions that are structured around narratives. But, it may accept works that break away from this general writing style.
Do not include your name or contact information in the file name, header/footer or title page. However, your entry should include at a 100-word max bio in the body of the email. Also, include the title(s) of your work in the body of the email. Prose submissions need to be double-spaced, written in Times New Roman or Cambria, 12 pt. font (no courier, please), and have their pages numbered.
Submission should be sent as a single Microsoft Word document attachment. It will not accept entries submitted in the body of the email. Your contact information, such as your name, address, phone, and email, should be in the body of the email. Submissions not following the above guidelines will most often result in an automatic decline.
TSSF Journal does not accept simultaneous or previously published works. Also, it only accepts one submission at a time from an author. There is no submission fee. So, it does not pay contributors at this time. Direct inquiries to journal@singlestory[dot]org.
