If you would like your writing featured on TNC, send your submission as an attachment to the email – hello@thenakedconvos.com.

We read each submission that comes to us within four weeks of receiving it. If you don’t hear back from us within four weeks, assume your article will not be published and feel free to submit another article.

We do not accept posts that have previously been published on other blogs/magazines.


We are open to submissions from writers from all over the world. Our preference is for Serialized Fiction (minimum 6 episodes) and Short Stories. Submissions must be well-written and directly related to or involve characters, settings or themes relevant to Africa. We are looking for honest prose, excellent writing and works that focus on contemporary Africa.

Word Limit: Short stories should be 800 – 3000 words.

Genres: All genres (But lit-fic, social drama and human drama is preferred)

Serialized fiction can be of any length but must consist of at least six 1000-word episodes.


Style: Material must be well-written. Language is important. We desire work with good “technical style” and “substance”. Humor is welcome.


We will publish sex and sexually themed stories/opinion pieces but will not publish pornographic material.

We will not publish stories that have no point, theme or artistic merit.
