Afrocentric Books is taking submissions for a fantasy anthology.

 We want adult stories. No erotica, though some erotic or romance elements are acceptable. Magic, gods, mysticism, mythical creatures. Bring us old fairy tales with an Afrocentric twist. We are interested in new gods or ancient ones, old religions, houngans, potions, and spells. Your story can be adapted from African folklore or modern tales. You aren’t restricted in your chosen setting, but priority will be given to stories featuring human characters who live in this world or some version of it. 

We want diverse characters in diverse settings, with a main character of indigenous African descent. Please read our general submission guidelines prior to submitting.

1,000-7,500 words, although we’ll consider pieces that fall outside those parameters on a case-by-case basis. Multiple and simultaneous submissions ok. No reprints.

If accepted, pay is $0.015 per word and a print copy of the novel. The deadline for submissions is September 30, 2019.
