Call for Submissions: The Single Story Foundation


The Single Story Foundation is happy to announce a call for submissions for the debut edition of our journal publication.

The TSSF Journal seeks well-crafted, realistic poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction works about Africa, Africans, and African issues from writers of African descents or those associated with Africa.

We take short pieces, up to 4,000 words for non-fiction and up to 6,000 words for fiction, and three to five poems. We ask for original, unpublished pieces.  The submission call period will be from June 1 to July 15.

Writers should send their works as a Microsoft Word document attachment to, with the email title as TSSF Journal: [Work Name], [genre].  We do blind readings. As such, identifying information should not be in the document submitted. All submissions should include at most a 100-word biography, in the body of the email.

Submissions will be peer-reviewed by Tolu Oloruntoba, Chris Ogunlowo, Ayo Sogunro, Meka Jegede, and Kacy Cunningham. The Managing Editor, Tiah Beautement, and the rest of the editorial team, Tolu Daniel and Genna Gardini, will work with the accepted writers to get their submissions publication ready.
