We love capturing the strength and power of African women!

Did you know that what truly makes us special, is that our platform is dedicated to the everyday African woman? Our Creative Residency members are not “professional” bloggers/writers, they’re just everyday women with a story to tell, and wisdom to share. They are also African women wanting to learn the in and outs of being a great writer. So if you have a gift in storytelling, empowering through words and celebrating women – join us and together we can change that narrative of the African woman.
