Who we are
We focus on Africentric writings and how they impact African people on the African continent and in the Diaspora.
We aim at bringing to the fore the many untold stories that enrich African lives; stories that have a bearing on Africans and their contribution to the global village.
If you have written an African-related story, the chance is that we can publish it. It could be a play, poetry, drama, novel or any such form of artistic creation that captures imagination, entertains and teaches a lesson. What we offer is insightful guidance in the writing process, editing and (eventually) publication.
We also welcome works in form of memoirs, research findings, academic paper collections, text books for schools or any such works.
To inspire the art of knowledge capture, recording and transmission and be the preferred and best of breed publisher in the world of “Untold Stories”.
We have a mission to provide publishing services for Untold Stories from a varied range of writers, teachers, researchers and many others. We aim at capturing, recording, storing and transmitting their knowledge for future generations.
Our focus is on Africans on the continent and in the Diaspora with a view to enabling them to tell stories in their own perspective; in their own voices.
We are committed to continual assessment of our client and readership needs so as to ensure there is alignment with our core values, aspirations and service to meet these needs.
As a learning institution we continually assess our focus to ensure improvements that best serves our clients, readership and the wider society.
Because we care. We also understand the challenges of getting published as an African. Despite the richness of the continent and its Diaspora, published works relating to the continent remain small relative to the size and population of the continent, its history and cultural and linguistic diversity.
We will aim at creating the best products in our “space” in the market, aided by continuous innovation in our strategy, processes and procedures.
We are committed to the independence and freedom of expression to assure integrity and credibility and thus engender public trust and respect.
We will continually adapt to changing circumstances to suit the times, whether in use of technology, language or modes of expression that support story telling in line with our mission.
