Welcome to Munyori Literary Journal. We look forward to reading your high quality submissions. Please submit one work at a time.

Fonts accepted are Times New Roman, 12 pt.

Page numbers should be at the top right along with the author’s last name and title of the piece.


Munyori Literary Journal is currently a non-paying publication, but it guarantees a world-wide readership. Munyori also participates in contest nominations, such as the Pushcart and the Caine Award for African Writing. If we nominate your work for a contest, we will inform you in writing.

We may choose to work with contributors on their work through additional editing, proofreading, and offering suggestion, as our aim is to enable each literary work to reach its full potential. However, all work must be proofread and edited prior to submission to showcase your work in the best light.
