Book Reviews: These can be on any literary book by an African writer on any subject. Send a review of no longer than 2000 words. Proofread your work thoroughly.

Author Profiles: If there is an author, dead or alive, whom you think readers should know about, please send a biography-style essay of no longer than 3000 words.

Poetry: Send your high-quality poetry on any theme. Send 3 -5 polished poems (I don’t do copy editing). Each poems should not be longer than 60 lines.

Fiction: Send short stories of below 3000 words on any theme.

Drama: Short plays are welcome; you determine what’s short.

Mototi Litscapes is currently a non-paying market, but it guarantees you a world-wide readership. Copyright reverts back to you upon publication.
