A few things to keep in mind:
Wazi, a monthly African youth fiction magazine, is open to submissions from writers from all over the world. Short stories, poems and serialized fiction must be well-written and directly related to or involve characters, settings or themes relevant to Africa. We are looking for honest prose, excellent writing and works that focus on contemporary Africa.
We are also open to essays and reviews.
Word Limit: Short stories and poems should be 800 – 5000 words (preferred length is around 2000 words).
Genres: All genres (But lit-fic, social drama and human drama is preferred)
Serialized fiction can be of any length but must consist of at least six 1000-word episodes. Some tips on writing a good series are given HERE

We will not publish stories that have no point, theme or artistic merit.
