Story has always been a rich part of the ethnic culture. For people of color, oral communication has been a means to come together. Now is the time for more ethnic voices to be seen—as well as heard—through print publications. The Swahili word harambee means, to pull together. Out of this truth, Harambee Press was birthed.
We are looking for writers who want to express the diversity of their culture and who have stories and life lessons. Whether through fiction or nonfiction, HP authors should carry a message of hope and redemption.
At this time we are acquiring fiction, nonfiction, and YA by ethnic writers. We are not looking for poetry, articles, or children’s books. We accepting submissions from people we meet at conferences, agents, and referrals.
