We are always looking for fresh and original pieces from writers at home and abroad. Whether you are a psychology undergrad or a qualified IT consultant, if you write fiction or creative non-fiction, we want to hear from you!

All work must be submitted by filling out this form, which will give you the option to tell us a little more about yourself and copy your story into the appropriate section.

Please note:

  • Ideally, submissions should be no more than 3,000 words.
  • We do not accept academic articles or opinion pieces. Here’s an example of the kind creative non-fiction we’re looking for but, if in doubt, please submit anyway.
  • We read absolutely every submission so there may be a short turn-round period. We aim to get back to everybody within four weeks.
  • We are not in the position to pay for accepted submissions at this stage (but we are working on it!)

Writers retain full rights to their work post-publication. If you would like to republish your story elsewhere, please make sure that AFREADA is credited and linked to as the original publisher.

If you have any questions, feel free to email – if you don’t have any questions, what are you waiting for?


We look forward to receiving your work.
