Our mission is to facilitate access for writers in Africa, to make connections with leaders + drivers of the international book market.
Our virtual classes and programs are the bridge that directly connect the heart of the literary world to African writers.
Our goal is to support our writers all year round, with different programs taught by highly qualified lecturers and editors to significantly improve their craft and get them closer to getting published on the global literary market.
Mmbasi's Legacy cornerstone event, this free writer's conference brings top literary agents directly to African communities to lecture, build connections and scout for new authors to bring into the international book market.
We champion the pillars of democracy and that is why we have a commitment to amplify the voices of human rights advocates and activists in Africa. We also help hone the voices of those fighting for change in their own countries, for literary endeavors.

We champion the pillars of democracy and that is why we have a commitment to amplify the voices of human rights advocates and activists in Africa. We also help hone the voices of those fighting for change in their own countries, for literary endeavours.
We bring literary agents to look for talent in parts of Africa where the writers have no access to them, due to proximity and affordability.
Not having access to the gatekeepers of the global literary market, often results in killing aspiring writers’ dreams of becoming published writers. With that, dies the concepts of innovation and revolution. We lose the crucial documentation of our histories and our experiences, and our talent of story-telling.
