Enkare Review is currently closed for unsolicited submissions.

Kindly ensure you read through the submission guidelines before sending us your submission. Submissions that are not in accordance with the guidelines will not be considered for publication. Thank you.

Submission guidelines

  • All submissions must be in English and previously unpublished. Work translated into English from other languages will be accepted. This must, however, be indicated in the cover letter emailed alongside the submission to or via our Submission Form. (although we much prefer the submission form)
  • All submissions must be accompanied by a bio of not more than 100 words. DO NOT attach your bio as a separate document.
  • All manuscripts sent via email should be submitted as Word documents (doc, docx) for ease of reading and editing. Do NOT paste the text of your work as part of the body of the email.
  • Submissions should be typed in TIMES NEW ROMAN, FONT 12, DOUBLE SPACED and LEFT ALIGNED. For more information on how to format your manuscript, look at the Proper Manuscript Format by William Shunn. Failure to adhere to this will lead to your manuscript not being read by our editors.
  • The first page of your manuscript should contain YOUR NAME, EMAIL ADDRESS and TITLE OF THE WORK BEING SUBMITTED.
  • For Fiction and Non-fiction, submissions should be between 2,5007500 words. For Poetry, please submit NO LESS THAN 4 POEMS but NO MORE THAN 7 POEMS.  ALL the poems MUST be contained in a single document and submitted as such.
  • For Photography and Visual Art, please send a pitch to and our Visual Arts editor will email back letting you know if we are keen to feature your work.
  • Adherence to the word limit is recommended, but we will bend this a little bit if it makes sense to surpass the word limit for the story or essay or poem to make complete sense. Don’t hold back.
  • Simultaneous submissions are acceptable, but we request that the writer notifies us when the submission is accepted for publication elsewhere.
  • As a suggestion, you are encouraged to read work that has previously appeared on Enkare Review to get a grasp of the kind of submissions we are looking for.
  • Please submit NO MORE THAN once at a time. Wait for our response on your submission before sending in another.
  • Due to the large volume of submissions that we receive, we aim to respond to submissions within THREE MONTHS after the close of the submission period. We will notify you within that period if your submission has been accepted for publication. If you don’t hear from us within that period,  you can query us at
  • Enkare Review would like to compensate you for the time spent and thought put into writing the submission. However, it is unfortunate that we cannot afford to pay for your work yet. Kindly bear with us for now.

We look forward to your submissions. Cheers!
