The Kalahari Review is an African-centric magazine interested in material exploring Africa and Africans in unique and avant-garde ways. Telling new stories from everyday African life as told by the people that are living it. We are looking for stories that have not often been told but should be – through voices that have not yet been heard - but should.

We hope to push the limits and expose the world to aspects of Africa not often shown - both the positives and the negatives. We are also interested in pieces about and from Africans living abroad as well.

Please take the time to enjoy the content on the site and get an understanding for what we publish before submitting.

Because this is a web-based publication there are no word count restrictions and no deadlines.

The Kalahari Review is always open for submissions.

Compensation: Unfortunately at this time we are unable to pay our contrubitors. However, our goal is to be be able to provide a place where African artist can receive proper compensation for thier work. We are working very hard to acquire advertisers and sponsorships. When we have proper funding we will change our policy on compensation. 

Thank you for being a part of the community and good luck.
