Publisher info

Black Letter Media is rooted in the poetry genre. In our first year, we have published two poetry titles as well as two short story titles. But this is only the beginning.

We publish Afrikan stories written by Afrikan writers in paperback and ebook formats. We are looking for quality writing that is imaginative, authentic, bold and distinctly Afrikan.

We aim to publish new Afrikan voices. Afrikan voices that challenge literary forms and challenge expectations of content. We're looking for Afrikan voices that have something important to say.

We're interested, specifically, in speculative fiction in long form or short form.
