Opportunity to connect with young writers in Africa through Mobile
Every1Mobile is a social enterprise (based in the UK and South Africa) which delivers Education, Health, Livelihoods and Entertainment content and services to disadvantaged young people in subSaharan Africa via mobile phone. We have approx 2million monthly active users in South Africa, Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, Tanzania and Zimbabwe.
Every1Mobile users have identified a need to connect with Professional Creative Writers. We receive and publish over 200 poems each day in a mobile community we run called Bsmrt – which is reflective of their passion for this form of expression – and has remained one of our most popular services in 2 years since our launch!
Every1Mobile would like to run an ‘Expert’ Q and A service on our mobile platform allowing users to ask professional writers questions about writing techniques and careers in creative writing. This could be a once-off activity or an on-going service running for a few months. But essentially it can be managed depending entirely on what time our guest ‘Expert’ is able to offer. While we would not initially be able to remunerate anyone for this time, we would love to promote your work and profile the writer.
