Please note: At the moment we are unable to take on any more work and submissions will be closed until the end of June 2022.

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.

We ask for your patience. On average, it will take at least a few months for us to respond to a manuscript submission. If you would like to have a reply sooner, please let us know: for an upfront fee of R3000, we will send you a reader’s report written by our founder and publisher, Karina M. Szczurek, within three weeks of receiving your submission (this fee will be returned to you in full should we offer to publish your manuscript).
