Agbowó magazine July issue is themed “Transition”


Deadline: April 30, 2023

Agbowó is growing to be a foremost African art company providing platforms for African writers and artists that ensure creative Africans can concentrate on creating great art while we ensure they get the audience and the value they deserve.

The editors of Agbowó magazine invite you to submit to its July issue themed “Transition!” What possibilities can writers derive from transitioning? And how does language transition from an idea into a story, a lexicon into verses? As editors, we admit that transition leaves a mark on us, a memory we carry with us as we kinetically charge toward a destination. As we delve into the complexities of transition, we invite writers to explore the theme through their wildest imaginations possible. From the upheaval of migration to settling down into a new home, from the strife of a breakup to the miracle of new love, we want to hear your stories of change and transformation.

Please use “Transition Issue” as the subject line of your submission. Along with your submission, please include a brief bio about yourself.

One Act Plays
  • We will consider for publication one-act plays with running times between 10 and 30 minutes.
  • Submissions can explore any theme and can be genre-bending as well.
  • We are open to new ideas so the plays can be experimental. 
  • The submission should have a maximum cast of 7 characters. There can be room for three minor characters with limited dialogues.
  • Submissions should include a cover letter with a brief summary of the play, the name and location of the playwright, the running time, performance history (if it has been performed before), and awards (if it has won any awards).
  • Submissions should be in Microsoft Word documents.
  • Only finished scripts of one-act plays are acceptable. Do not submit drafts of works in process. Previously produced plays are welcomed.
  • The play must be a complete one-act play, not a part of a larger work. 
  • Please remember to indicate in your subject the issue to which you are submitting.
  • Please send your One-Act plays for consideration here.
Compensation: $50
