Kalimat Magazine is currently accepting submissions and proposals for interviews. The publication is not necessarily about Arab affairs and culture, but focused on providing a space to the Arab creatives worldwide  to explore and produce ideas and work.

We welcome queries from unpublished writers and we pride ourselves on working with new and emerging writers with a wide range of voices that are well researched and persuasive. We particularly encourage writers to grapple with ideas that are important and are not present elsewhere.

Kalimat Magazine has never followed a theme and we cover a wide range of topics designed not to limit anyone, so feel free to pitch whatever you like but please do not send previously published work.

The writing should be accessible to a general readership (comprehensible enough for a high school student and interesting enough and research-worthy for an academic). Our readership is worldwide, and so local issues should be written in a way that is understandable to a reader anywhere in the world.
How To Submit:
Please familiarise yourself with our magazine, blog and other social network content before querying by reviewing some past issues.

Submissions and/or queries may be sent via email to Submissions should be in .doc, .docx, .odt or .txt file only (no PDFs). The subject line should read “Submission”. In your query, make sure to include your name, the best e-mail to reach you, a little about yourself (50 words), and a writing sample (as links or attachments).

As we are currently only publishing online, interviews should be no longer than 1,500 words. We will occasionally accept longer interviews.

Kalimat is run by a group of volunteers. At this time, we cannot pay contributors. Thank you for considering Kalimat Magazine as an outlet for your work.
