About the Angime Literary Journal

In Kazakh, Angime [Ahn-Ghee-MAE] means ‘conversation’. In the spirit of this word, Angime promotes international, multilingual and multidisciplinary literary and artistic conversations. Edited by the diverse faculty of Nazarbayev University, Angime takes advantage of its distinctive intellectual and creative context in Kazakhstan.

Published digitally and in print, Angime accepts submissions in fiction, poetry, nonfiction, translations, photography, visual arts, hybrid and experimental works, as well as interviews, reviews and essays. We welcome submissions in English, Kazakh and Russian as well as translations from other languages into any of the three. While we are particularly interested in fostering work from Central Asia and the former Soviet Union, we also encourage submissions from established and emerging artists from around the globe.

Angime accepts submissions in fiction, poetry, nonfiction, and the visual arts. While we are particularly interested in works that engage with Central Asia and the post-Soviet sphere, we also welcome submissions that frame a conversation between multicultural, multilingual, and multidisciplinary perspectives.

  • For length requirements, please consult specific guidelines for each section.  

  • We accept simultaneous submissions but ask to be notified if your work is placed elsewhere.
