Thank you so much for your interest in writing for AfrikanRising! I’m excited to expand this site and also to share stories other than my own.  As a writer for this blog, you have the freedom to write about whatever you’d like as long as they meet these specifics:

-Must be health or beauty related, and/or must address social justice issues. Your stories can be as personal as you want or they can be research based, it’s up to you.

-Must be 400 words or less.

-Must have some sort of visual- picture, GIF, or video.

-Must have depth. There are tons of superficial blogs out there and I want AfrikanRising to be fun, as well as informative.

-Must be free of grammatical errors. (If you are intentionally using slang or colloquial language, please indicate that in your writing submission)

If you are interested, please email for more information.
