Karavan Press is a small, independent press with limited resources and we can publish only a few books a year.

We are constantly on the lookout for new voices and will approach writers we are eager to work with. Once you become a Karavan Press author, we will always strive to offer your subsequent manuscripts a publishing home, but we do not insist on the right of first refusal.

Before you consider submitting your manuscript to Karavan Press, please read at least three of our existing titles. This will give you an idea of what inspires the creative vision behind Karavan Press.

We want to establish strong bonds between our authors and readers, so please join the community of writers, creatives and readers that is Karavan Press and follow us on social media in order for all of us to connect and share stories and ideas. The best way to get in touch is via Twitter or Instagram; alternatively, please use our Contact form. We monitor the accounts on most days during the working week and will let you know how to submit your manuscript as soon as possible.

Please note: 1) Our publishing list is full until the beginning of 2024. 2) From July 2022, we will charge an upfront submission fee of R1500 per manuscript; you will receive a brief reply about the success of your submission within one month from the day of submission.

If you would like to receive a reader’s report, an upfront fee of R3000 will apply (this fee will be returned to you should we offer to publish your manuscript).
