Free self-publishing for all

WritePublishRead wants to mobilise individuals across South Africa to convince people in their community that reading adds value. By creating reading champions in every community to inspire that community to read, and by providing people with reading material and motivation that will entice them to read, this initiative wants to create a groundswell that will encourage more people to read.

Submit your manuscript for the 2021 WritePublishRead Assisted Self-Publishing Programme.

Submissions are open until 23:59 on 14 March.

Time until submissions close:

Through WritePublishRead a multitude of authors can be created who can promote their stories to the people around them. With easy access to affordable stories, written by people from the community, a localised momentum will be created that will inspire more people to write and in return more people to read.
