NONFICTION: Your article – whether an opinion piece, how-to, personal experience, inspirational, humorous, investigative, technical, or new product article – will be considered for publication, regardless of whether you are a published writer/author, or not. Length should be 500-2000 words preferably. Please note that longer writings (more than 2,500 words, but not more than 7500 words) are more likely to be published in DUNIA print magazine. Writings MUST be original. We do not accept nonfiction articles that have been published elsewhere.
FICTION: DUNIA aims to bring to its readers exciting fiction and poetry from both published and emerging writers around the world. In the same light as DUNIA’s multicultural theme, we would gladly publish literary works that defy cultural boundaries, the kind of work that anyone can feel comfortable reading. We prefer short fiction of 500-2000 words, hinged on all aspects of the human condition. We are not particularly keen on genre fiction. Our preference is literary fiction that can speak to people in ways that make them feel a sense of change in themselves.
Poetry should be limited to at most 50 lines. It must be character-driven. We would love to read your free verse poems, written such that anyone who can joggle the alphabet would enjoy. Send a maximum of five poems in one document, as an attachment or pasted with the email.
Simultaneous submissions elsewhere are acceptable in the Fiction category, and if that is the case, be kind to inform us of where the work has been accepted elsewhere.
IMAGES: DUNIA is always interested in photography and art, especially photographs/images depicting nature, landscapes & living, events, fashion & style, and general lifestyle and cultural realities. To be featured online or in our print magazine. All necessary and relevant credits and attributions should be included in submission.
