African Writers Hq is a Pan-African digital platform/journal dedicated to promoting African stories by Africans. We understand that African stories matter. We understand that telling African stories is good, but having Africans tell African stories is better and these quotes agree:

““Africa’s story has been written by others; we need to own our problems and solutions and write our story.” – Paul Kagame (President Of Rwanda)

“All we need is to let African people speak about Africa” – Emmanuel Macron (President Of France)”

African Writers Hq shares journals about Africa’s history, culture, lifestyle, literature and people. We are turning African stories into readable and shareable digital contents. And making access to information/stories about Africa easier.
