  1. We are looking for fresh, innovative, insightful, and entertaining articles.
  2. We are eager to publish culture writing, personal essays, thought-provoking pieces, and fiction between 500 – 1500 words.
  3. You may send your article (one at a time) as an attachment.
  4. Please note that the article should be in MS Word format – with your name and the title in the header of the document.

  6. Provide a short bio of no longer than 100 words, links to your social media handles, and a photo of you for our backend profile

Please, remember that BlackLadyWriter is a pan-African platform that strives to share stories relevant to the African continent under the key thematic areas of the African Union Agenda 2063.

Guest posts are subject to review by the BLW editorial team. However, we will not make any material changes that will derogate from the essence of your article.
