The Regional Literature division at Macmillan Education South Africa publishes educational literature for Grades R-12 in English. We invite manuscript submissions in the genres of fiction, poetry, drama and short stories, as well as children’s stories and folktales that are appropriate for school learners and have educational value.

As a southern African publishing house, we focus on publishing books by southern African authors, as well as books that deal with historic and contemporary southern African themes.

  • Submissions should be sent via email (in Microsoft Word or pdf format).
  • Manuscripts should be typed in Times New Roman or Arial, font size 10-12, and lines should be single-spaced.
  • Ensure that all pages are numbered.
