Ons Klyntji zine 2024 call for submissions

14 July 2024

Ons Klyntjie Zine 2024

Ons Klyntji zine is an A6, 152-page, black-and-white print publication celebrating South African and African creativity. They mostly publish poems, but also short stories, cartoons, photographs, etc.

There is no theme for submissions. Ons Klyntji zine is looking for original pieces that capture something of our times – a truth, a sadness, a joy – and carries the clear sound of integrity.

Types of submissions:

  • Send only your 3 best poems, in any language you please (if other than Afrikaans or English, please provide a translation).
  • For short stories (Afr/Eng), the word limit is 2000 words.
  • You may also submit non-fiction; writings about music, road trips, nature, culture, anything really.
  • For images you can send in photos, drawings, cartoons, doodles etc.

Please do not submit written material in PDF format. They will only consider material submitted in Word. For images, please submit the material in black & white (grayscale for photos). Material must be high-res Jpg files. Keep in mind that they print in B&W only, and that the zine size is very small (A6). Visual material that “reads” well when printed small will be given preference.

Ons Klyntji does not pay contributors, but everyone who gets published will receive a free copy and can buy extra copies at near-cost (which you can then sell for your own pocket). Copyright remains with individual contributors.

Email your submissions to zine@klyntji.com or sendusyourpoems@gmail.com by midnight on 14 July 2024.

If you do not hear from Ons Klyntji via email by 30 August, you can assume that your submission was not successful this time around. Publication is scheduled for mid-September 2024.
