General Submission Guidelines

Thank you for your interest. Moko publishes short stories, poems, interviews, essays, reviews of books, art, photography, and other types of visual media. Any academic articles requiring extensive bibliographic references should be submitted to other journals.

Our goal is to publish the best possible work while encouraging Caribbean creators to continue to develop their craft by providing an outlet for that work to be seen. At this time, we do not accept any hard copy submissions. All submissions should include a brief biography along with your contact information. Please follow the guidelines for your respective discipline closely. We do not accept any previously published work and we can only entertain one submission per discipline at a time. Please allow at least 90 days for a response.

Poetry, Fiction, Essays

All writing for Moko should be double-spaced with one-inch margins in a Word (.doc) file. For poetry, submit 3-5 poems in a single document. For all other writing you may submit up to 3,000 words.

Visual Media

The same guidelines apply for photography submissions as well as photography of art submissions.
