Celebrating East African Writing!

DrumBeats Manuscripts Submission

We invite manuscript submissions of love stories based on the guidelines attached.

DrumBeats are passionate, sexy love stories from East Africa. They bring to life our very own memorable heroines and heroes, who face varying conflicts on their romantic journeys but ultimately love conquers all.

DrumBeats Romance invites East Africans to tell their own love stories. Capture the love story behind beautiful, sexy, confident, focused, hardworking and romantic East Africans – irrespective of ethnicity or race. Love in the maize field. Love stewed over matoke or Java coffee. Love dressed in a sari or bui-bui or mitumba. About loving that makanga or the IHUB techie.

Kindly email your completed manuscript as a word document to and copy
