Mukana Press

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Mukana is accepting submissions for our freshman cohort of titles. We seek to champion authors from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds with a focus on authors from Africa, South America, The Middle East and Asia.

We publish full length books (short story collections, memoirs and novels). Mukana does not publish self-help books, picture books and previously self-published books. We welcome YA and Adult novels.

We are particularly intrigued by OWN voice stories, coming of age stories, protagonists wrestling with identity and belonging, stories with international settings, stories about immigration and emigration plus we love strong feminist protagonists. Surprise us though, if you think your work draws readers into untold perspectives and worlds, we’d love to hear from you.


In addition to full length manuscripts, we are seeking short stories from African writers for our inaugural Anthology of African Writing.
