At Masobe HQ, we are always on the lookout for new talent, writers with fresh and original voices/perspectives who tell stories that hum with emotional truth, stories that uniquely explore the human condition as well as stories that entertain.
We are currently accepting fiction (novel and short story) manuscripts. So if you are a storyteller or know someone you think tells the most magical and fantastical stories, you are welcome to show us what you got.
“I think there is a lot of literary talent out there,” said our founder Othuke Ominiabohs. “It is one of our strong desires as a publishing house to find these gems, to give them a home, a family, so together we can build something noble and beautiful with our stories; something that transcends time so generations to come can look at this creation for hope and perhaps divine new meanings to our humanity. This is the power of stories. This is our collective dream as a family—to find and care for each other, with words.”
