Praxis Magazine Online is currently inviting submissions in four genres: POETRY, FICTION, NON-FICTION, and JOURNAL STORIES. Specific guidelines for each area appear below, along with the email address for submissions in each genre. Praxis Magazine encourages new and existing contributors to review the guidelines carefully; submissions that do not adhere to the guidelines will be returned unread.
Praxis Magazine will also be adding two additional genres, REVIEWS and ART / PHOTOGRAPHY in the near future, so check the website regularly for updates: http://www.praxismagonline.com/
Poetry must be the original, unpublished work of the author. Praxis will consider poems that have appeared on personal social media accounts, but not ones that have previously appeared in print or online journals, anthologies, or collections.
The editors will consider simultaneous submissions, but do email them immediately if your work is accepted elsewhere so they can remove it from consideration.
Each submission should include two to five poems.
Praxis is open to traditional and experimental styles, including prose poems, as long as the poem as a whole is aligned to the left margin.
The team would be delighted to consider poems in indigenous African languages (Yoruba, Igbo, Hausa, Swahili, etc., including Naija Languej) if they are accompanied by an English translation.
A bio statement of no more than 150 words should appear at the end of the Word document, and should include, at minimum, where you are writing from (e.g. Lagos or New York).
Poetry submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
