SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW CLOSED

Hey everyone!

It’s that time again. We’re looking for pieces for our final quarterly for the year, whose theme is “Home.” We have had three successful books out this year, and at this time of year, many are thinking about winding down and going “home.”

What does it mean to be at home? What is home? Who does the idea of home protect/not protect? What does the notion of home represent to you? How does/can one’s home change? Can one fail to feel at home? Can one be at home in many places? Have you ever been evicted from your home? How did that feel? How can one create a home for oneself? These, and any other questions, can guide your submission.

Please pitch us!

We are seeking essays/stories/experiences from 2000 to 4000 words, and you would need to be able to turn in a first draft by 11.59 pm on Monday, December 1st.

We’re also looking for poetry and photo-essays on the same. If you have an idea for an interview or a short feature, we’re looking for that too.

Please send pitches to submit@brainstorm.co.ke with the subject line “Home Pitch” by 11.59pm on Sunday, November 23rd. The pitches should have a minimum of 200 words. We will respond to all pitches after that date.

Please forward this call for submissions to anyone you think might have something interesting to send our way.
