Thank you for your interest in Kahani magazine. Outlined below are our guidelines and contact information for submitting work.

Kahani is the first national magazine of its kind. We uphold extremely high standards for any material that we publish. We do not accept stories, art or Spotlight queries that advocate any religious or political agenda. At this time, payment is made in contributor copies.



Most of our illustrations revolve around children and primarily people of South Asian descent. The artist must be able to depict these characters in an authentic manner. When submitting samples, please make sure the work shows children engaged in different activities, yet staying consistent during a narrative.

On occasion, we look for spot art to illustrate crossword puzzles, etc. You may submit spot art samples showing everyday objects, like a telephone, microscope, etc.

We accept a variety of styles and mediums.

Samples can be sent to:

Newton Centre, MA 02459

Work is assigned on an as-needed basis. If interested, we will contact you via phone or e-mail. Please include an SASE if you would like your samples returned.
