Jalada Africa, a pan-African writers' collective, has partnered with Transition Magazine, a publication of the Hutchins Center at Harvard University to publish a collaborative issue on the theme of Fear.

Materials selected for this issue will be available in print and digital editions of issue 123, forthcoming June 2017.

From fear as weaponized terror, to the fear of the Other, the fear of love, the fear of death, the fear of failure, of success, of spiders, crowds, heights, closed spaces etc., fear is a diverse topic.

Submissions of fiction, poetry, prose and visual art on all aspects of this dynamic force, covering themes as varied as recent global events to philosophical and fantastical treatments of the subject are welcome.

1. Each story has to be sent as a separate Microsoft Word attachment, in the .doc format (no PDFs) ad clearly labeled with the story title and the names of the writer and/or translator.
2. Make sure to include the word, “Fear” in the subject line of your email.
3. Each submission must contain the title of your piece and word count.
4. Where applicable, the submission must contain both the original piece and the translation.
5. All submissions must be accompanied by a biographical note, written in third person, and no more than 100 words in length.
6. All submissions must be previously unpublished, except for the case of translations where the source text may have appeared elsewhere.
7. Visual artists are welcome to submit their work.

You may send your submission either to or through Transition’s submission portal, but NOT to both at the same time. Writers who had already submitted to Jalada are asked not to resend their work as it is already being considered.
