uHlanga does not accept unsolicited poems or manuscripts for publication outside of our announced reading periods. Our next reading period is in February 2019.

Where can I publish poetry outside of reading periods?

Your best way to get noticed by us is to be an active poet, publishing as many poems in as many places as you can. There are a number of excellent periodicals and websites in South(ern) Africa that accept unsolicited poems for publication. Here are some local periodicals that uHlanga reads most often:

New Contrast
New Coin

You likely won't publish any poems, however, if you don't read any poems! Support local literary magazines.
