The Uganda-based magazine The Nalubaale Review is calling for submissions—short fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction—for its Travel issue. The deadline for submission is 15 June 2019. In an email to Brittle Paper, its editor Nakitto Irene explained that the name “Nalubaale,” which in Luganda means “god” or “mother of gods,” is the original name for the Lake Victoria, the largest lake in Africa and second largest in the world.

Here is the press release.


The Nalubaale Review seeks your submissions on the theme of TRAVEL. Submissions can be poems, short stories, essays, photos, haikus, articles, legends, local folktales (original language and translations are both welcome), tales about places, travel experiences or blogs and many others.

The call is open to Africans living here and abroad. Submit a maximum of three poems, two short stories of 2000+ words, and 10 photos.
