Wealth in Writing
Finally faithful followers of Sebuleni Stories, who enjoy reading poetry and prose published on our website have a chance to support the platform, as they promote writing talents, and also make some cash at the same time.
This follows the launch of an affiliation programme which has been christened Friends of Sebuleni Program, or FOSP in short.
The programme which comes a few months to marking Sebuleni’s third year since its inception, aims at promoting and honing creative writing talents among Kenyans by providing various incentives.
Sebuleni [www.sebuleni.co.ke] is an online fiction and features magazine that gives Kenyan published and yet to be published upcoming writers, a platform to showcase their creative works mainly prose and poetry. Through the magazine, the upcoming writers not only gain confidence in their work, but also get closer to publishing their work into books.
Since the first article was published in Sebuleni in April 2018, the popularity of the site has grown leaps and bounds and now it has readers drawn from almost all the continents of the world, save Australia. Sebuleni has also attracted writers from other parts of the continent including Nigeria, Ghana and South Africa. We also have Kenyans abroad who contribute, mainly from Englad, Norway and Hungary.
As it enters its third year, Sebuleni which is a nono-profit-making organisation, would now like to go a notch higher by introducing a programme where our writers, readers and anyone interested, can participate in a thrilling initiative that will earn them a passive income while they contribute towards a worthy cause.
