BtFFkR4IAAAn9wyLooks like Granta Magazine is suspending their no-unsolicited-submission rule. But we don’t know if it’s for a limited time only.

So if you’d like to get your fiction, non-fiction, poetry or essay published in an upscale literary journal, you have between now and April 1 to put something together.

It might help to know that African writers have always had a strong presence in Granta Magazine, a very prestigious journal known to feature international authors.

The likes of Chinelu Okparanta, Taiye Selasi, Teju Cole, Chimamanda Adichie, and the Mozambican novelist, Mia Cuto, have had their writing featured on the magazine at some point. Also the Zimbabwean editor and literary critic, Ellah Allfrey, used to be a deputy editor at Granta.

So yeah, Granta is no stranger to African writing.

Good luck! And remember the deadline is April 1.

Aerogramme Writer’s Studio has the details on how to apply below:

After a long hiatus Granta, one of the world’s most prestigious literary magazines, is again accepting unsolicited submissions.

Granta publishes fiction, non-fiction and poetry. There are no strict word limits, though most prose submissions are between 3000 and 6000 words and the editors advise they are unlikely to read more than 10,000 words of any submission.

All submissions will be considered for both the print and online editions (unless otherwise stipulated in the cover letter). Selection is extremely competitive and only a very small fraction of submissions will be chosen for publication. Reading recent editions of Granta will help you assess whether your work is likely to be a good match.

Writers must submit their work via Submittable and there are no reading fees. For further information visit the Granta website.
