The Nigerian Publisher, Masobe, has released a Call for Submissions of Manuscripts and thus shown that they’re always on the lookout for the latest literary voices in African fiction.
Below are the details from the Press Release:
At Masobe HQ, we are always on the lookout for new talent, writers with fresh and original voices/perspectives who tell stories that hum with emotional truth, stories that uniquely explore the human condition as well as stories that entertain.
We are currently accepting fiction (novel and short story) manuscripts. So if you are a storyteller or know someone you think tells the most magical and fantastical stories, you are welcome to show us what you got.
To send your work please visit our website or go through the following guidelines.
