Opportunity: Submit to Praxis Magazine’s Chapbook Series

Please check your E-mail inbox or spam to confirm.
Praxis Magazine Online has made a call for submissions to its remarkably successful poetry chapbook series. The series publishes poetry chapbooks online.
The series, long helmed by Praxis’ poetry editor Laura Kaminski, is now overseen by JK Anowe.
On their website,

Praxis Magazine Online seeks to publish a number of chapbooks per year. We do not charge reading fees or hold contests. Chapbooks are selected during our reading periods or, occasionally, through solicitations.

We are interested in poetry that redefines language and form, poetry that shocks, that makes us both revere and question the ordinariness/magic of the world around us. Poetry that enacts a careful understanding of music, passion and creativity. Nonetheless, we are not bound by any specific aesthetic; our sole mission is to publish poetry collections of high potential and quality from Africa and elsewhere.
We welcome submissions from a variety of new, emerging, established, and underrepresented voices including, but not limited to, women poets, LGBTQ poets, disabled poets, and poets of colour.
Our reading period for 2019 opens on 5 January and closes 5 February. All submissions must be emailed by midnight, WAT, on 5 February. Any submissions received outside the reading period, or through any means otherwise stated, will be attended to.
Please submit only one manuscript during the reading period. We do accept simultaneous submissions, but please inform us via email if it is accepted by another publisher.
Send all submissions to halima@praxismagonline.com. The subject line of your email should read “Submission / Poetry Chapbook.” Attach the manuscript as a Word document.
