Call For Submission 2021 : The Shallow Tales Review


The Shallow Tales Review calls on interested writers to submit their works ranging from fiction, poems, photographies to essays and more.

Below is the guidelines for submission. All interested writers are advised to read the guidelines before proceeding to submitting their works.

Submission Guidelines For The Shallow Tales Review

In The Shallow Tales Review, they accept fiction, opinion articles, commentaries, book reviews, poems, one-act plays, cultural essays, art photographs, and random thoughts that touch on the sensibilities of the African.

Literary criticisms must concern texts that are of modern and African temperament.

For essays, themes are expected to be tackled logically and as clearly as possible. Feel free to break genre restrictions as you wish. They appreciate fluidity as much as we value ingenuity.

What They Don't Want!

They DO NOT publish horror, sci-fi, travellogues or any sociological piece without the slightest literary tilt. They could, however, break our rules for exceptionally great pieces that reflect the African/human condition.

Are Writers Paid?

For now, they do not pay contributors, but according to them, they hope to do so in the nearest future.

Entries should be sent in by mail to the editor at: theshallowtalesreview@gmail.com with “TSTR Submissions” in the subject line.

Non artwork entries should be between 1,500 – 4,000 words and should come in .doc or .docx format. 

Poetry submissions should not be more than forty (40) lines, per poem. They accept a maximum of three poetry entries at a time.

Previously Published Works?

Only previously unpublished works would be reviewed and considered. Reprints are NOT allowed. Do inform them if your piece has been considered or is being considered for publication elsewhere. All intellectual rights revert to the authors. 

Files should be saved with the title of the work, and in the case of a body of poems, with the first poem in the file.

They would respond as soon as they review for publication.

They only accept one body of work in a genre at a time. Feel free to send in another entry to them if your work was rejected within the submission window.

The Shallow Tales Review literary magazine publishes six times a year in January, March, May, July, September, and November. They begin to receive entries from the 1st of every publishing month. 

Deadline For Submission

Deadline for submissions is on the 20th of each publishing month.
