    • Well, I can’t really say. What I do know for sure is that if your manuscript meets their fancy, they would definitely get back to you…

  2. I HIGHLY APPRECIATED YOUR GUIDELINES ABOUT THE SUBMISSIONS OF THE MANUSCRIPTS TO THE AFRICAN WRITERS SERIES. I HAVE LONG WANTED TO INDULGE INTO SUCH A JOURNEY BUT I WOULD LIKE TO REQUEST YOU ON: FOR HOW LONG DOES ONE HAVE TO WAIT FOR YOUR RESPONSE AFTER THE 3 CHAPTERS SUBMISSION. THANK YOU.

  3. I am Chizoba Nweke from Nigeria. I believe that I could be successful only if the submission is on. I became through in 2016, so I hope I can go on?

    • Hello Nii, sorry I am only getting back to you now. I can’t say for sure but from experience with working in a publishing house, I would think the standard would be at least 30,000 words. But that is not an authoritative position. Just my thoughts.
