Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
Mukana means “opportunity” in Shona, the language spoken in Zimbabwe. Our Press was born out of desire to give writers from underrepresented communities the opportunity to share their work. In a world where minority writers often lack access, our mission is to increase representation and diversity among published authors. We publish full length books (short story collections, memoirs and novels). We do not publish self-help books, picture books and previously self-published books. We welcome YA and Adult novels.
