Writers Afrika is back - please read

10 February 2012
Writers Afrika is back - please read
2011 wasn't a good year for us. We're freelancers and we used to rent an office where we could collectively work and at the same time be of service to writers worldwide. But that (and other resources) had to go.

From the time that we announced that we had to stop updating this blog, we've received hundreds of responses from interested people/ organizations who would like to take over. We're very sorry for not replying. We haven't had the chance to sit down and talk about the proposals as we would like to be able to revive this blog ourselves.

Now, we're seeking your help to get us started again. We've redesigned the blog for easier navigation and a cleaner look, and we've already set up our tools so we can update the blog with more relevant and "real" writing opportunities. Our posts will be carefully handpicked from thousands of sources.

Support us by donating any amount. Your donations will go to utilities, manhours and other resources involved in the updating of this blog. They will be well spent, we promise. A one-time donation of $5 will be immensely appreciated, but we are also accepting pledges of monthly/ be-monthly/ quarterly support as we are thinking of taking out the unsightly advertisements in the future. Just email us at writersafrika@gmail.com.

This is the only blog of its kind that's regularly updated, and we're sure you and the writing community in general have benefited from this labor of love.

We'll start updating this blog shortly. Let us also know of any requests and suggestions that you may have. In the meantime, do not hesitate to click on our donate link below. Thank you very much for your generosity. We're excited to get started again.

(IMPORTANT: You can still donate even if you don't have a Paypal account. Click on the donate button. Somewhere at the bottom of our donations page you can see "don't have a PayPal account" link. Further instructions are there.)
