Submission guidelines

Oriire spotlights and explores content relating to African heritage. We are accepting content which relates to:

  • African History

We accept content in the following formats:​

We strive to be as diverse in our representation as possible and seek content that cuts across different cultures from the many countries in Africa.

Authors of all submissions selected for publication are paid a flat rate of N10,000 per article.

You will be asked to provide payment details on the submission form.
