Submit To Márọkọ Literary Journal, Issue II: Call for Submissions

 
Maroko Literary Journal


Márọkọ, an annual print and digital journal published by the Lagos International Poetry Festival, is now receiving submissions for its second issue. Interested writers are required to submit their works in the different categories as provided for in the submission guidelines.

Accepted submission are paid. The title for the issue is 'HERE AND NOW'


About Maroko Literary Journal


The journal, Maroko, is names after the thriving migrant community east of the Lagos Lagoon who were violently evicted in the early 90s to make way for one of the most expensive real estate strips in the world, a garish urban sprawl built on the debris of over 300,000 scattered dreams, Márọkọ́ draws its ethos from the unbowed spirits that relentlessly confront the reckless possibilities of Lagos. 

It renders the rough hewn beauties and joys that connect pan-African and pan-diasporic experiences, in poetry, prose, visual art, and photography, tracing a contemporary canon across the contours of contemporary black urban life. 

About Maroko Issue II 

This year’s issue is produced in partnership with the British Council’s International Collaboration programme, a transatlantic and collaborative residency taking place in Scotland and Ghana, and will feature, alongside accepted submissions, poems and essays from its six resident poets. 

According to Maroko,

"We are currently seeking poems, essays, and photography on the theme, Here and Now, which finds its roots in the shared global apprehension following the aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic. The echoes of lockdowns, deaths, the reshaping of economic landscapes, and the resonating cries for justice, from America to Lagos, form the backdrop of our post-covid era. We realize that we are still in the process of healing, of understanding the depth and breadth of these seismic shifts.

We envision this edition as an international mosaic of voices, writers acting as witnesses to these transforming times. We invite submissions that reflect, protest, investigate, and articulate the personal impacts of these transformations, narratives of change, adaptation, and survival - the currents that have shaped our shared 'Here and Now'.

The broadness and indefinable nature of our theme is purposeful. We want to steer clear of any formal or linguistic constraints, instead encouraging creativity to bloom unfettered. Your response could take myriad forms, and we wholeheartedly welcome this diversity, for it is this very expansiveness that encapsulates the spirit of our times.
