The Shallow Tales Review literary magazine is an online literary outfit that aims to share the unique African story. It was founded in August 2019 by Nigerian writer, critic and editor, Nzube Nlebedim.
On The Shallow Tales Review, they take it to heart the publication of works that tell of the African story; of the African who rises from his shallow depths to prominence. They chronicle the shift of the shallow African from mediocrity to success.
The 30th Issue
In The Shallow Tales Review, they accept fiction, opinion articles, commentaries, book reviews, poems, one-act plays, cultural essays, art photographs, and random thoughts that touch on the sensibilities of the African.
Literary criticisms must concern texts that are of modern and African temperament. For essays, we expect themes to be tackled logically and as clearly as possible. Feel free to break genre restrictions as you wish. They appreciate fluidity as much as we value ingenuity.
They DO NOT publish horror, sci-fi, travellogues or any sociological piece without the slightest literary tilt. They could, however, break our rules for exceptionally great pieces that reflect the African/human condition.
After accepting submissions for their 2020 issue, Shallow Review has finally published their 30th literary issue and it is a success.
