The Shallow Tales Review is an online literary magazine that aims to share the unique African story.

In The Shallow Tales Review, we accept fiction, articles, reviews, poems, drama, essays, art photographs, and thoughts that touch on the sensibilities of the African.

Note: Essays and criticisms must concern literary texts that are of modern and African temperament.

We DO NOT publish horror, sci-fi, travellogues or any sociological piece without a literary tilt.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

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

Entries should be sent in by mail to the editor at: with “TSTR Submissions” in the subject line.
Works should be properly formatted and edited as best as possible.

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

We would respond as soon as we review for publication.
