The Clip: Call for Submission

The Clip: Call for Submission


The Clip, a monthly print magazine, is accepting submissions for publication.


Length: 1500-2500 words for prose pieces. Occasionally we could consider serialisation of extremely long pieces if we find your work stunning and cannot but publish every word of it.

Categories: Environment, youth, literature, sports, health, information technology, politics, entertainment, and lifestyle.

Genre: For the non-literary pages of the magazine, we will accept all manner of writing – feature, creative non-fiction, essay, travel writing, bizarro. As long as it’s good, we’re with you.

For the literature pages, ditto. However, note that we will feature only poetry and prose here.

Submission: Pending when we can afford a submission manager, please send your submission via regular mail at In the subject line, specify (i) which of our stated categories you are submitting under, (ii) the first three words of your submission’s title, and (iii) your last name. Each bit of information must be in caps and separated by a period. For instance, if Niyi Osundare is sending an essay titled Birthdays are not for dying, this is what he’d do in the subject line: “ESSAY. BIRTHDAYS ARE NOT. OSUNDARE.”

Your submission must be accompanied by a brief cover letter containing who you are, what you do, how we can get back to you, and a line or two about your submission. Do not write us a treatise, please.

Simultaneous submissions are fine, but seeing as we are a publication with a rather peculiar slant and style, we like to think your given work may not fit anywhere else but here – whatever its fate at the end of the day.

Submit only one work at a time and wait for a response before sending us another. Response time is between 2-4 weeks.

If you deem it necessary to include background information (text, pictures, etc) regarding the subject of your submission, please do.  We will be grateful for it. However, as it is not the main work, keep it short – 300 words max, and include it as a separate attachment.
Please note that, except we request for edits on accepted work, do not, at any point in the editing process, send us revised versions of previously submitted work.


DEADLINE: For works targeting the September, 2013 edition, make sure your submission gets to us before August 5, 2013. And for subsequent editions, submit four weeks before the targeted edition. For example, if you are submitting for December, 2013 edition, send in your work before October 31st 2013.

Payment: The Clip is a paying print magazine and we strongly believe in the compensation of writers for their work, therefore it is our plan to remunerate our regular contributors. It will be a TOKEN and this will only be possible after you must have worked with us for at least three editions. We may commission contributors who display prodigious talent and skills to write special features which will also be remunerated specially.

Also attach a photo of yourself, if that’s okay. JPEG format. On publication, each contributor will receive a contributor’s copy.

Inquiries: Ask us whatever you want here In the subject line, type, “INQUIRY”. To stay in touch with us and abreast of new developments like our Facebook page:
We look forward to working with you., …the exceptional deal
